    Re: Three Peaks Fell Race

    I'm so jealous of everyone, I wish I could do it again this year. We ran Whernside and Ingleborough via the path behind the Crown which worked out 18.5 miles in 3hrs. If we had kept at that pace and done PYG as well it would be comfortably under 4hrs for the whole route Not bad for a training run.

    I'll be having a good go next year I reckon.

    Maggie - I did it in 2008 with a week between and was fine. It was actually my fastest of my 3 PPP runs.

    I'm doing AW again this year before the Peaks.

    For your info I'm just a steady fell plodder who typically gets by of 20 odd miles per week who will get around AW in about 2:30 and PPP in about 4:50

    What drinks are supplied at the drinks stations? I hate carrying bottles but very nearly bonked at Edale recently and planning how to avoid it occuring next week. Realise you can send drinks to Ribblehead and Hill Inn but not sure how easy it'll be to find mine and was wondering what the standard drinks are.....I'm guessing it's adams ale!

    I sent drinks last year for the first time and found them no problem - just label them up well. You can also tape gels or bananas to them as well.

    They have water as well at various points.

    I still carry a bit for emergencies mind you

    I didn't last year but really regretted it and by Ingleborough was absolutely parched! I'm considering sending drinks ahead but I think I'll wait to see what the weather's doing - if it's hot and sunny I definitely will.

    I was fine at Edale this year, just drank two cups at each station and had 500ml with me.

    Maggie I've decided definitely not, even though I'll be there at the AW to support the juniors. I have to save my knees now - they are feeling it after a long run yesterday and won't recover in time if I race that one too.

    I would go for it personally. I was hoping to do Teenager with Altitude but there weren't any places left, so I've opted for Y Moelwyn which is similar (a little easier that Anniversary Waltz). It all depends how fast you recover I suppose!

    Yeah standard drink is water, but label youre drinks bottle at the satrt and place them in the relevant boxes at the start and they'll be there waiting for you at either Ribblehead or Chapel le Dale. They usually lay the bottles out in numerical order so as they spot a runner coming towards the feed station they easily find your bottle and hand it to you without you even thinking about it, it was great, and all with a nice smile,
    well, that what happened to me anyhow.
