    It used to be the 3rd Saturday in October, but they moved it to the 4th, so you should be ok still for next week. I've not been for a few years since they changed the start field, and I think they changed the race route too. It used to be a cracking little show though.
    Fitness can't be stored. It must be earned over and over, indefinitely.

    Last time I got to this show (a few years ago now) the route went from the showground, up and around the back of Whin Ben - a subsidiary summit of Whiteside -and back to the showground - distance 1 maybe 11/2 miles.

    Hope this helps!

    Didn't go. Had a blast up Ingleborough instead. Did anyone go?

    This race may yet be cancelled. The shepherds meet has definitely been cancelled due to weather. The RO is deciding whether the race can continue without the show. Will post more when clear.
