    I have run it twice, and recce'd the route many times. Finding the top of Great End can be tricky in mist, and even in good visibility, route finding from Slight Side to Red Tarn, and then from the top of Blisco to the finish, can be challenging. Even if navigation is not a problem, the second last ascent from the River Esk is never ending, and amazingly steep if you go straight up. Good luck.

    10.49 miles, 3,068 feet, 2 hours 56 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Overcast, very little sun, a cool breeze. Terrain dry. Perfect in a vest. Quite a few on the top of Loughrigg.

    5.71 miles, 2,487 feet, 2 hours 11 minutes: St Sunday Crag and Arnison Crag from Patterdale Cricket Club with 8 or so from AAC. Sunshine and clouds, no wind, terrain dry. Roads and car parks busy, the fell less so. Glad I had sunscreen on.

    9.74 miles, 3,830 feet, 3 hours 22 minutes: Winterseeds - Seat Sandal - Dunmail Raise - Steel Fell - Calf Crag - Gibson Knott, then down the zigzags before Helm Crag. Mainly overcast, occasional sunshine. Windy on top but not cold. Terrain mainly dry, but a bit damp and slippery in places. Lots of people heading towards Calf Crag from Helm Crag, and the roads and parking areas are very busy. Saw about 10 other runners.

    15.35 miles, 4,642 feet, 4 hours 50 minutes: Ambleside - Rydal - Nab Scar - Alcock Tarn - Winterseeds - Grisedale Tarn - Cofa Pike - Fairfield, then the rest of the Horseshoe c/w. Sunshine and clouds, lovely and cool on top, warm in the valleys. Terrain dry, soft. Not that many on the fell - surprising, given what a nice day it is. Town is very busy.

    9.28 miles, 3,540 feet, 2 hours 55 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Very overcast - it looked like it could rain anytime but it never did. T shirt rather than vest weather. Terrain dry, soft. Lots on the steps up to the Pike, and on the top, but I was on my own on 2 of the ascents.

    15.65 miles, 4,584 feet, 4 hours 58 minutes: Ambleside - Rydal - Nab Scar - Alcock Tarn - Winterseeds - Grisedale Tarn - Cofa Pike - Fairfield, then the rest of the horseshoe c/w back to Ambleside. Overcast, cloud base at about 1,500 feet, intermittent very light drizzle, windy on top. Terrain damp and slippery. I was OK - just - in a t shirt, gloves, and tights. Not many on the fell, but town is busy with people and cars.
