    I have taken over as completions recorder for the Cumbrian Traverse. If you successfully completed the traverse anytime between 2012 and today, please let me know on cumbriantraverse@gmail.com and I will add you to the list. I'd be grateful for basic details such as orientation (S - N or N - S), finishing time, summit timings, conditions, your age on the day - anything you think relevant.

    It will probably take me some time to rebuild a meaningful Completions List, but I'll give it my best shot. It's my plan to forward bi-annual updates to Tony so he can update his GoFar website.

    I expect that several of you will have read Martin's column in the latest Fellrunner and seen that I have taken over as the Cumbrian Traverse recorder. I've had a number of successful contenders get in touch with me and I'm very grateful, however I would like to build as complete a picture as possible and to that end am missing quite a lot of relevant information. If you completed a traverse prior to 2012 and the fact was captured on the last update, I would still be grateful if you could get in touch and give me the basics such as S - N or N - S, finishing time and summit timings etc.

    The Cumbrian Traverse completers list as of 31 May 2018 is now on the Go Far website at http://www.gofar.org.uk/CumbrianTraverse.html

    It's already out of date because Paul Calderbank (Ilkley Harriers) and Steve Rhodes (Hyde Park Harriers) completed the traverse S - N on 1st June, well done to both!

    A Tranter round and a Cumbrian Traverse in the same week for Steve! I wonder if that is an obscure first?

    Myself and Mrs P finally cracked the CT yesterday, scorching hot out on the fells and very dry. Saw lots of Saunders competitors up around Esk Hause and a couple of BG attempts. A great day.

    Ah - that was you I had a quick chat with on the way down from Esk Hause then. I had assumed you were on the SLMM and was quietly marvelling how small your rucksacks were, until you told me you were doing the CT!!
    Well done on the CT completion in very hot weather. :-)

    Hi there.

    Hope to do the Cumbrian Traverse this weekend. Know the area pretty well from Bow fell, but would ideally like a gpx file as back up. I read here that you had one.
    If you still have it could you send it to me?
    Thank you
