Grisedale Horseshoe fell race – 05 September

For the first time in ten years I have been able to avoid injury and keep my diary clear for the Grisedale Horseshoe, one of the best races in the Lakes. Well organised, well marshalled and still enjoyably low key. 10 years ago I didn’t race with a camera and now I can’t afford the time to take pictures during a race but Pauline should have some on her blog before too long.

Needless to say it was a tough day out and I should thank these three guys from Lostock for dragging and pushing me round in a time I would have been delighted with, had I been given it before setting off – thanks Mike and the Two Marks! Had I not gone the wrong way after the last Checkpoint my 03:12 would have been a bit quicker but I am happy with the way everything else went.

Huge thanks to Tony Shanley (RO), all the marshals and everyone else involved on Saturday

With no need to rush home we retired to the Travellers Rest for a shandy before settling in at Beetham Cottage for a couple of days.
