    Well done on your performance yesterday Caity.
    We are so proud of you and Tim back here in Glossopdale.
    Mad woman, doing Lantern Pike Dash today.
    I am dashed that I blew my only likely chance of beating you in a fell race after you dropped me before the turn today, on your weary OCT legs.

    What a great day. Thanks to the organisers.
    Just a note for next year. Coming down from Blea Tarn you need to descend near the zig zag track (just to the right)to hit the swing gate in order to start on the track around to Side House farm. Or alternatively go to the left of the zig zags to hit the swing gate to access the campsite (or just go on the road all the way I suppose, but then it is a fell race). As far as I am aware keeping a high line around side Pike means you need to cross over fences (or a fence corner) with no style. Strava users beware!

    fyi, not sure it's been published/communicated yet anywhere, but the date for the 2016 race is Sat 21st May (as per email reply I got from the RO Chris Lloyd yesterday). A bit later in the month than I expected.

    Getting excited as entries are now open for this year's race. I don't want to sound tight (although I know I am!) but I am a bit surprised that it now costs 35 per pair to enter. I think it was 25 last year and a mere 20 three years ago.

    Having said that it is still good value for a full day out on the fells with food, drinks and a t-shirt included in the price. I was wondering if the increase is partly due to the map which is now included in the price. Not sure why this is needed as I thought the Harveys BMC map at 1:40,000 was ideal. Does anyone know?
