    Rather than create a new thread, though I might do that so that it doesn't get lost, and since I've posted registration information here already this is a bit of a heads up.

    I noted earlier about the level of spam vs genuine registrations. This morning I noticed that Google mail had marked two spam attempts as spam whereas previously they would come through as genuine registrations. These usually happen when an actual person fills out the form but the data is obviously fake - "Barneyxqijka" as a name for example. What might happen is that Google might start associating emails from the registration form as spam.

    If that happens I'll probably have to make some changes to the registration process so that I don't lose genuine registrations. The probable solution will be a "front page" that filters between new registrations, update details and possibly one or two other options. The registration form itself would have a random BGR based question: "What's the second road crossing going anti-clockwise?", "Who holds the record for the fastest round?" or similar where you have to type in the answer rather than select from a list.

    Without me you'd be one place nearer the back

    A merry band of, so far, 3 of us are meeting at Threlkeld 830am this Sat 3 March for a trot over leg 2. Pace is a modest run / walk / snowy trudge. If time, conditions and eagerness allow, we may also do an out and back of part of leg 3. All this is snow dependent for travelling up, as we are not local. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome but let us know you're coming or else be on time! I'll post any update to plans here

    Recce going ahead Sat, leaving Threlkeld around 830. Basically leg 2 but with choices along the way depending on weather and who's running. Looks like it'll be a cold and challenging day

    So did you make it over leg 2 Saturday? I was supposed to be going to the Lakes Sunday (for Lakes 42 recce though) but it wasn't feasible to travel unfortunately! I love running in the snow but think I've lost a lot of speed this winter :-)

    Part of leg 2. Wind was so strong (>50mph) on the tops it was hard to stand, so I went as far as Raise then cut back and down Sticks Pass and took a low level route back. Was also very cold: according to fell top assessors report -8C and with wind chill that made it -23C! Character building.

    Combined it with a bit of a TdH reccie then, Chris?

    Are you back up before the GL3D?
