    Re: 3 shires

    I'll see you there uc. The forecast has taken a bit of a turn for the worse though. There could be early rain passing through.

    The Gun, The Roaches, Gradbach, Three Shires Head, Shutlingloe (only if we're feeling energetic), here we come, not forgetting to loiter at Wildboarclough for the oatcakes.

    I'm walking it with my daughter. Say hello on your ways past! Don't worry about leftover oatcakes: we'll sort them out.

    Thumbs up Re: 3 shires

    I'll be there with Paul H from Goyt Valley. Looks like it'll be a good one.

    If the food is anything like the Kipling Kaper we'll finish fatter than we start! Great stuff - the LDWA really know how to organise an event. (think it's Staffs?) Only event where you can run 29ml and gain weight!!!

    Re: 3 shires

    What a pleasant low-key trot in the hills today, courtesy of Staffs LDWA. It's so low key everyone (even the 9am runners) are facing anywhere but the right direction when it's time to go. Such reticence, in a no-pressure sort of way. It would be unseemly to appear too competitive at the start, but you can do what you like once you're off. Thank goodness the rain was fleeting and brief and the sun came out.

    It was great to see a few forumites and bloggers there: Will, Splatcher, Emma. Ultracollie (Dave 'n' Charlie) provided excellent running companions.

    What about the food though. The spread at Wildboarclough Village Hall was as good as it was on Kipling Kaper (cakes, biscuits, sausage rolls, hot cheese-filled oatcakes) but the food at the finish left me oozing gratitude and delight. From memory it included salad, tomato and basil in olive oil, salad with rice, salad with couscous, salad with apple, a selection of olives, fresh ham (NOT the plastic variety), tuna, potato salad, bean salad, grated cheese, a selection of quiches, bread and butter, pork pie, .......... For dessert there was a large selection of fruit pies with aerosol cream or custard. Unlimited tea and coffee were assumed and provided.

    This is one classic event. Shutlingsloe was as good as ever, but the obvious route up it has changed over the years. I took the original (now less obvious) direct route to the summit.

    Re: 3 shires

    Right on my doorstep and I missed it... bugger!

    I do love a good oatcake!:w00t:

    However, did an off-road workshop with Macc Harriers and that was fun.

    This one looks a gem though, and shall look out next year.

    Anyone got a route map?
