/ 3 peaks fell RACE
Just got to get some training in now - if the Mickledon Straddle today was anything to go by I have some work to do...
Best of luck to you all!
Not in myself, but partner is. I'll be crewing and shouting abuse...sorry encouragement... ;)
I'm guessing it fills up pretty quickly? Was hoping to check the calendar at home this eve...
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.
Whernside was crazy last year!
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).
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.
