Buttermere Sailbeck fell race – 10 May

This would be my first AM race in the Lakes and while I might once have had the time (and the pace) to stop and take photos I don’t have now. In any event, the low clouds and rain would have been enough to persuade me to leave my camera behind.

Despite the soaking I really enjoyed the race – it is a superb and very testing route – the climb to Causey Pike isn’t going to be forgotten easily. Route finding in the clag was interesting too but I managed to avoid the “Grasmoor Extension” which may go someway to explaining my unexpected 2nd MV60 place. The results are here.

Huge thanks to Race Organiser Rhys Findley-Robinson and to all the marshals and everyone else who helped.
