Helvellyn and The Dodds Fell Race – 28th May 2017

Described by the organising club as 14.9 miles with 4,386ft of climbs, just 1 strider went along coming home 32nd in a time of 2:50:39 …

Helvellyn fell race 16m and a couple of hills.
Race started with the mist down over tops. Had forgotten just how steep the first few miles were. Nearly vertical….
Glad I packed an extra warm top as the sun broke through and baked everyone alive, should have read a proper weather forecast. Will use this next time
Really please with 10 min faster than 2014. Finished in 32nd place in 2 hr 50 very pleased.
Cracking run if you can cope with hills,fab scenery and a good spread of sarnies and cake after.
