Sunday (11th September) saw the 58th running of the Lake District Mountain Trial and on the way to Mungrisdale some early sunshine suggested the weather might be better than forecast.
With severe weather forecast for later in the day all the courses were shortened, to their respective “bad weather” route which involves not visiting one of the furthest checkpoints. Anticipating, correctly, that the weather would be too bad for photographs for much of the day I took some of the early starters.
Thereafter the weather deteriorated and my camera stayed wrapped in its waterproof sack. By the middle of the afternoon the weather was pretty awful – not unlike my own performance. Out over 7 hours with only one other finisher behind me. Hey ho, there is always next year. Results are here.
