The Double – 03 January

The Marsden-Edale meet is always the first Rucksack Club Meet of the year and a small group set off from Edale the night before to walk to the start in time for breakfast and the walk back. 15 of us set of this year but one struggled with the pace over Kinder and was escorted down to ensure he would be safe. By the far side of Bleaklow I was suffering with an upset stomach and by Black Hill had decided against the return leg. I am now pretty sure drinking too much, too cold water was the cause and it isn’t the first time this has happened to me on The Double. The last time I struggled back to Edale, this time have done it before and being unable to eat I knew there was so sense in attempting it.
