    Hi everyone.
    Newbie here throwing my hat into the ring for a 2016 attempt. Being realistic, that should say "first attempt" but its all about the journey and just looking forward to some big days out.
    I like the "Class of 2016" tag as it reminds me that there is a lot of learning to be done!
    Looking forward to sharing experiences on the forum.

    Sorry Arkel. Of course your right. Recce's and meeting new people is what the BG is all about. Last time I attempted was for charity and it all got a bit out of hand with the local papers and radio getting involved. So when I said "low key attempt" should have read "normal attempt" my apologies

    Thanks Derby Tup.

    Yes, the FRA Forum site is an absolute encyclopedia of ideas and info. If nothing else, it is good to know that am not the only one completely obsessed by the BGR and wondering which route to take up/down any particular fell!

    Will try not to ask the same old questions ...... but NO promises there

    If anybody wants a bit of company on their reccy runs then I would like to join you if available. I need to start looking at forum regularly but just PM me if you want a partner for day.

    I'm finally going to have a go and have date set of May 20th next year and without any effort seem to have a great support team. Two of us having a joint attempt. We are both pretty experienced in 'going long' but both well aware that until you get back to Moot Hall, you will never know if you have it in you.

    I have a few days leave left this year so may do a few more trips this year if weather is OK. I've done Leg 4 twice in last few weeks along with Leg 1 so getting to know all about it. It's harder than I thought !! Only part of route not done yet is Leg 3 as thought would save one of the toughest bits to last although I know a chunk from other races.

    I'm planning a 2016 attempt. Tried this year but had to withdraw through injury on leg 4 - was gutted as I was the only member of the "DP machine" to not complete. I'm based in the peak district so a lot of training around Kinder again, probably won't get up to the lakes again before next year now but I'll keep an eye on the thread and hope to meet up with some of you for a recce or two.
