    Loughrigg Silverhow Sun 24 Feb

    Jon Broxap asked if I would put this on here:

    The Loughrigg Silverhow Chase is on Sunday 24th February. The usual course and arrangements. Register at Ambleside Rugby Club in good time for the race start on the under Loughrigg road at 12 noon. Cost about 3.

    For those that don't know, the course runs up to Loughrigg summit then steeply down to the top of the Red Bank Road. Then up to Silverhow summit and back the same way. The record is about 65 - 70 mins I think.

    Spread the word please
    See you there!

    Whats happened to Jon publicising this race, i thought it was usually a well kept secret. The only time i remember it being widely advertised was in the Foot & Mouth year when it was run in November on the same day as the FRA do

    Helm Hill Runners would like to give this race their full support.
    It may help take some of the pressure off parking at Cautley Spout.

    Anyone going to Barbon for a proper fell race?

    Is this a double bluff marketing strategy?
    Fitness can't be stored. It must be earned over and over, indefinitely.

    Its a LOCAL RUN for LOCAL PEOPLE (We'll have no trouble here!)

    Its supposed to be a badly kept secret and with it being the same duration as Black Combe, a perfect warm-up for the season's opening champs race. So keep away offcomers, we need to keep numbers down (to enhance my finishing position!).

    Numbers will be low anyway , cos you cant enter on-line!! so the geeks will be missing.

    This is preposterous. Does nobody think of me when they organise this event? Honestly Broxap, you ARE the limit!

    It MUST be put back by one week. This is NOT too much to ask. I am still in New Zealand and can't make it back in time for the currently scheduled date.

    And I do like this race an awful lot.
    Why walk when you can run.

    Greetings Mr theNoor!
    My heart bleeds for you, such is the injustice of putting the race on at your inconvenience. Never mind, at least you'll make the ageing Ambleside team for Black Combe. Word is they've been digging up graves in order to get new members for the champs.
    Loughrigg/Silver Howe is a great unsung race and you are right to regret the miss.
