—Blencathra Fell Race.  ( Weds )

Christian , Simon and Giles. The last descent in the background.

A glorious Lakeland evening was the reward for three club members who made a post work dash across the Pennines for this 8 mile evening race, offering glorious  views.

The spectacular course featured an initially steep ascent of Bowscale fell , after climbing above it’s bracken  clad sides the steepness abated and the rolling grassy fells of the Northern Lakes became our playground. Crossing the very runnable Mungrisdale Common we had soon  reached the routes highest point , Blencathra 868m . Thankfully our route down would not be via merciless Sharp Edge , instead we launched ourselves down the forgiving grassy slopes of  Scales Fell , with  a quick climb back up Souther Fell and a final ‘how fast dare you go ? ‘ steep descent down to the river crossing and the finish.
