    Leg 1/2, Sat 7 April

    I'll be recceing legs 1&2 on Easter Saturday, with a car parked up at Dunmail for return to Keswick. #1Spookster's coming along, & anyone else is welcome to join in. I'll be running at my BG pace, to find out what schedule's realistic for me - 22 hours or 23:59 is the main question! And to learn the route a bit better of course. 8am start from the Moot Hall.

    A handful of us from Macc are going up to do just this tomorrow... aiming to leave Keswick about 09.00.

    As for other dates and recces, there's a thread on the Macc forum "Bob Graham Round" and all welcome to join in.

    Cheers

    Sounds good, but I've a feeling I'm working that weekend unfortunately.

    Just bumping the thread in case anyone wants to join in. Leaving the Moot Hall at 8am on the 7th after dumping a car at Dunmail, arriving Threlkeld at 11:45 at the most optimistic, then on to Dunmail. If you think you might want to come along pm me this week & I'll give you my mobile number: I'll be in the Lakes for a week's walking beforehand so won't pick up any emails or pms after this Thursday.

    Hi Andy
    I was going to do exactly the same on either the Saturday or the Sunday, so glad I checked on here!
    My emails alanbill99 {at} yahoo {dot} com so drop me a line with your mobile number and we can keep in contact.
    I'm stopping in Grasmere, well just below Dunmail Raise actually, so we might even be able to sort out Logistics as I was just planning on ditching car in Keswick and getting it say Sunday.
    Drop me a line and we can sort.
    Nice one !

    Yes, thanks Splatcher - got round fine and as you know it was a great day.
    8 hours all in which I think is 22h schedule.
    Couple of minor shortcuts-cum-extensions on route but no more than 15 mins dropped.
    Halls Fell Descent is awesome !
    2 down, 5 to go
    Nice one, will look out on here to see how you're doing.
