    Friday 18th May 2012 Attempt

    Hello all,

    I'm planning an attempt on the above date starting at 2am going clockwise. My problem is I'm living in Ireland and thats ruled out recce opportunities. So I'm hoping I might be able to find some eager runners/navigators who might like to run a leg with me. I've got someone doing the full route with me (Terry Conway) but we could use a few experiened navigators who know the route well. I'm sorted for a leg 4 runner as Bill Williamson has kindly offered to help.

    I may be pushing my luck looking for help on a weekday but I'm tying the attempt in with a function in the area which is happening on the Saturday, hence the need to be done and dusted by Friday evening in time for a pint and a sleep.

    Any takers? Don't all jump at once!!

    Thank you in advance

    Paul

    This depends how desperate you are!! At present I have a 'working' knowledge, of 1-3, i.e. sketchy on clever short cut bits in places, 4 I need to recce Yewbarrow round to Kirkfell myself yet. Leg 5 I know pretty well, as its straight forward. However I think I'd be unable to assist there as I'm due at work on the 19th. I take its 2a.m. Thursday night/Friday morning you're going?

    Just looked again, confused as to exact time you're setting off as you say you require being complete by Friday evening. Also what pace do you require as I'm not quick at all. Failing me being any use as a runner, I may be of use as support.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll be starting at 2am Friday morning in the hope of being finished that evening. ie sub 18hr pace all going well. And if it suits and you are willing to support any way you can, then great! I realise the Friday start rules out those at work but Saturday is ruled out because of a wedding I'm attending in the area. Anyway it's very kind of you to offer assistance either way and I appreciate it.

    I may be available on that day subject to some work shuffling.
    Did an 18.51 anti-clock last August. Done a c/wise too. Know the ground. Based in South-West Cumbria.
    Can do a couple of legs. Got Jura on 26th so two legs may be enough.

    Hi Paul

    If you are still looking I'm almost certainly available that Friday and am happy on any of 1-3 too.
