Three Shires fell race – 20 September

Mid-September so my right knee must be poorly, and it is. Last week’s Mountain Trial (Medium) made it no worse (thankfully) but watching the Three Shires seemed like the most sensible option. It also gave us the chance to do a bit more bagging so we added Wetherlam to our third round of Wainwrights and 9 new Birketts on a 9 mile circuit from the Three Shires Stone.

Hell Gill Pike, Little Carrs and Great How are on the Swirl How side of the Prison Band while the others are in a cluster between Birk Man Fell, Blake Rigg and Great Intake. This is the first time we have been on this side of Wetherlam and we stayed below the low cloud but we were denied seeing Wetherlam because the cloud base dropped as we dropped down to Birk Man Fell.
