Or does my attempted inclusion of a non-competitive, non fell running element deserve nothing more than a summary execution at dawn?
    the latter. you soft, bike-riding get.

    see you saturday.

    There used to be classic Fishwick in Wales on Aug bank holiday weekend. Brecon Beacons on Sat, Cnicht on Sun, Machen on Mon. Only ever managed 2 out of 3.

    Welsh Fishwicking opportunity in July: Pen y Fan (AS) on the 12th, followed by Fan y Big (BM) on the 13th. Not the longest, but good enough!

    Also, instead of calling this a "mountain marathon" (it isn't: you get to go home between the two legs!), the could've called it Fishwick Weekend?
    ....it's all downhill from here.

    He will see that as a Challenge Wheeze.

    Will be on his way to the travel agents as we speak to change his currency.

    Challenge? More like an easy weekend for a Fishwicker

    It's good, but on the same weekend last year the Man himself was doubling up Wasdale and Holme Moss. 2 ALs, I think that can only be beaten by the Scottish Islands Peaks Race for weekend/extended weekend Fishwicking .
    (depending on boat - Fri 12:00 4 mile hill race around Oban. Fri 16:00ish Salen - Ben More and back, 24 miles. Sat AM Craighouse, 3 paps, 3 arch bridge, Craighouse, 14 miles. Sun early AM Lamlash - Goatfell and back 18 miles.)

    (I was thinking about the Brecons weekend, but Wasdale is calling me more and more!)

    Anyone even considering a Wasdale / Holme Moss double is showing severe Fishwickian tendencies

    Probably a Fishwick too far for us mere mortals
