    Well the bit they can see anyway.
    I tried that one, but they all told me to f**k off trying to be clever.

    Hope you enjoyed them. Jaffa cakes were far more popular than Chocolate digestives, but Jelly Babies were the favourite - they all went.

    The mans a legend! Great to be out watching top fell runners trying hard, rather than being an adequate fell runner struggling. Kieron pulls off a blinder as well!
    The young lad Harry that won was so impressive and Vic Wilkinson ran a blinder. Great day out even if we were soaked and hypothermic at the end - so glad to see the sweeper.
    And special guest at the party was the snapper Wharfee.

    Brilliant job marshaling today. Conditions weren't too bad for running in. Not great for standing around in I would imagine.

    Myself and the venerable Mr Tait are looking forward to marshalling again at the bottom of Big End this Saturday. I hope the weather forecast improves for us!

    Well it was a bit moist, but not too cold, always good to spend time on the fells with Mr Tait. Amusing to be at our post below Big End and watch runners coming through a 10m length of a First World War battle field/rice paddy to get to us and the jaffa cakes and jelly babies. Then they had a small hill to climb - some of them said ungodly words!
    Harry from Kendal won, and yet again Keiron pulled a blinder and organised a great little funrun, with a very tasteful T shirt. Next year is the 40th running of this!

    There are some of us who cannot look at our 2007* Edale Skyline T-shirt without feelings of eternal gratitude towards Mr Tait.
