In reply to quirky: Yep, got the entry in nice and early having failed to get into the Edale Skyline despite trying at 3pm on the day entries opened!!
Just got to get some training in now - if the Mickledon Straddle today was anything to go by I have some work to do...

In reply to quirky: It's on the same weekend as the Fellsman - I know which one I'm entering and it doesn't have a 3 in the title :)

Best of luck to you all!

In reply to quirky: i'm entering it for the first time this year. i've heard a rumour that you can place pre prepared drinks at the drink stops. how many drink stops are there and can you do this?

Yes you can. Hand a bag with your number on to the officials and they'll put it just after the point you leave the road at Ribblehead and the Hill Inn.

In reply to quirky: I can't believe its on the same weekend as the Fellsman again!

Whernside was crazy last year!

In reply to Mike_Bottom:

Surely the Fellsman and 3 Peaks competitors are on Whernside at different times?

3 Peaks starts at 10am, so most people will get there after 12.
When I did the Fellsman I was off Whernside before 10.30 (and finished well down the field, just under 20 hours).

In reply to Toreador:

I think last year it felt like it impacted like it did on Whernside because there was a Fellsman entry who required MRT assistance with a broken leg, IIRC.

Either way, I think it's a great race that demands discipline and strategy along the way (and a bit of fitness helps too...)

It is a great race. Back in 2002 the weather was horrendous and made the whole day very challenging. But it was something I had personally built up to for a long time and remains a real personal milestone.
