    Re: 3 Peaks 2 April

    Had a run round on Saturday, very dry underfoot, even the last field that's always wet was just soft. I reckon it'd have been far comfier & well runnable in road shoes, Harriers were still OK though. I'm assuming the descent off Whernside is going to be flagged again to keep to the path which should be even more fun than last year, especially with the new slabs, there'll be bodies everywhere if it gets wet on them things!

    Yes I have done the race in road shoes before now. If it stays dry I will probably wear some on Saturday!

    The weather forecast for the next few days is that it will piss with rain

    Not sure where exactly you mean, I assume in Horton... Is this the footbridge going to the car park by the toilet block? Or a footbridge going over towards Penyghent? Or a road bridge?

    Should be there with andygib for the start, although I will probably cut up park fell and only do 2.

    Go thro Horton wth PYG cafe then main car park/toilet block on left, over road bridge (Pub on right), swing left and we will be on LHS somewhere. Alternatively if you want to park in the main car park, cross footbridge after toilet block, meet road and TL - same place. Hope we see you!

    It didn't rain when I did it today (as I set off so late and missed it) but I got soaked because I fell up to my bosom in a river by mistaking what was probably a dead sheep for a rock and using it as a stepping stone (or something like that). I'd dried out by the time I reached the top of Whernside thanks to the howling gales!

    Its very muddy coming off of Ingleborough and it is exceedingly boggy coming from Penyghent. Good fun though!

    My sentiments too. At least I kept my head above water!
