    A classic night!

    Just like the first Bedlamite Embsay - thick with an ice encrusted snow - easy to follow the route, just followed the blood trail from Sam Watson's shins!

It was only on tapping the memorial cross that I realised that the "lights" were all those who had missed the turning point and had continued for another mile. One of the few times I got a top ten placing

    I remember half the field beating Ian Holmes at one Bedlamite Kettlewell

    That's the one I won, when the first 6 or 7 got lost in circles looking for the trig point. Hee hee hee.

    Ian.
    I was last in said Sailbeck race, it was possibly the worst conditions I have raced in. Total pea Souper - luckily the sweepers saved me a trip up Grasmoor like Graham!

    The one day I was glad to have full kit and I even had spare to give a severely hypothermic runner at the last checkpoint.

    Lothersdale Bedlamite, one forumite got lost and ended up in the wrong valley and Brett and K1 ended up in a car looking for him!! They still won't let me live this down!!

    Well not quite up Grasmoor... but certainly my worst day on the fells (as Ian and the Schofields will verify) after over 1000 fell races, including 12 Sailbecks!, and setting off from CP4 on the right bearing for the last CP...which all goes to show you can never "switch off".
