/ Track Claire Maxted On Her Bob Graham Attempt
You can follow her progress here:
and wish her well here....
Gonna be wet! :-(
As you know Bob...
On average there are 200 wet days/year; 145 dry days/year; 20 snowy days/year in the Lakes
So that's who ALC is!
The track's showing her at Wasdale Head now. She has 6:30 to make it back to Keswick.
Is it still on?
and is about to get worse according to the rainfall radar.
she's still on the move though!
> she's still on the move though!
Yeah, good on her!
Honister now, at 5pm, so won't make the 24 hours, but great effort considering the weather
Been horrendous weather in Cumbria today, a lot of local roads are closed due to flooding. A lot brighter now, but it must have been a long night and a gruelling day.
Claire report of her round...
Great stuff. Good on her for keeping at it despite the awful weather.
Well done Caire, I've supported on a couple of rounds and am in awe of anybody who does it. To have such bad conditions and not use those as an excuse to stop when you are feeling knackered and in pain shows great mental strenght.
The Blog is a good read also.
Yep, good work that woman.
Good work! I can't even imagine doing something like this in good weather, let alone in those conditions.
What a fantastic blog! Almost as inspirational as "Feet in the Clouds", and a very real account.
