    Ive got it about 6 mile from Clough head summit to Helvellyn Summit, so by my reckoning its about 14 in total, could be wrong like but it seems a fair bit more than 11.5....

    not sure where start is but from the A66 followowing BG route its 13.5km to the summit of Helvellyn. I realise it doesn't take all the tops in but it would suggest it is further than stated but who cares, level playing field, day in the hills, etc,...

    Are you sure you've got the right map? This is a new race so if your map is from last year or earlier it's the wrong one.
