    probably is a bus - but this is actually pretty easy to get back to start - only 18 miles by road. So possible on bike if you were feeling fit!

    Thats a good point. Hitching would have been my favoured choice of transport 25 years ago but havent really tried it for a while but it was always fun so it might be time to get the thumb out again. On the other hand! Toms suggestion of a bike is good and I have never tried 18 miles on a bike after 35 miles running but great training for ultra yet to come!!

    Excellent stuff DT, I can then hitch from KL back to my car at the start! Have you done this? perhaps a joint effort next Spring?

    Had a run at the upper calder valley 13 trigs yesterday. Been on my radar for a long time now as Its local to me. Carried food and gear but stashed water near the White House @ blackstone edge, bridestone and near the NT car park at hardcastle crags.

    Felt pretty strong and consistent throughout, just a couple of low points where things started to hurt quite a lot. Got round in 9:34.

    It's a good route and makes for a decent day out in the hills. Would recommend

    a bit of a write up below:

    Well done ricky. a great time.

    A good day out this, I'm surprised it hasn't received more interest over the last 10 years especially with so many fell runners on the doorstep, and do-able in daylight as well.

    Thank you. yeah i was happy to come under 10 hours. Potentially could have triedpushing it a little more for a faster time but i think i would have end up blowing up somewhere along the way, whereas i had probably the most consistent run i've ever had.

    yeah i agree its a good day out and a shame it doesnt get loads of uptake. i know a couple of people who had a go earlier this year during some lockdown BG training. i put together quite a few local long distance challenges myself but the only one that got any real uptake was the tod graham round. i've had a few local runners message me after reading my write up though saying they'd like to have a go. will be interesting to see if anyone can attack Simon's record at some point.
