Thread: Wasdale

  1. #1

    Wasdale

    Can't believe it's nearly that time of year again...

    Just had a look at the CFRA website, and it looks like we should be getting our Jos Naylor signed certificates from last year - one of my reasons for entering in the first place.

    Who's up for a bit more pain this year?

    Hoping to make my Wasdale debut this year. Just trying to psyche myself to fill in the entry form (deep breath now....).

    Is that a "race entry"
    form or

    "how can we contact your next of kin if you disappear and never make it back"
    form?

    Just trying to help with the confidence......!

    If anyone's tentative about doing it then just go for it. I did it last year as my first ever lakeland race and ran it at a reasonable tempo, although not pushing too hard. This worked out well for me as I got to admire the views although I was still ticking along nicely. It's fantastic - for the uninitiated, running up Great Gable looks and feels like a "proper" mountain, and the run down from Scafell must be one of the best descents in any fell races. I stayed at the national trust campsite which is a great place to be. It's the best feeling, on the Saturday night, just to recline in your camping chair with a few slices of bacon sizzling away on your stove, a beer in your hand, to look around the cloud covered tops and think "I ran round those fellas today"... .

    Just done a reccy of part of the route yesterday - the bit between Seatallen and Pillar looked a bit tricky on the map but was OK in clear weather yesterday. I'm going to have a go but I think it might be beyond me - the reccy was as much about finding the retirement routes as the actual route!!
    This will be my first "superlong" race - but good training for the Ben

    AlsoRan, I'm sure you'll be fine on the day ~ just make sure you concentrate on the Scoat Fell traverse and not end up on Red Pike (unless you're jacking in!).

    21 miles, 9000 ft climbing................mmmmm!

    Good luck everyone
    See the light in the night

    Right, sent my form off today. Drove down Wasdale last week with the family and looked at some of the stuff I'll have to get round. Very interesting.
