    Going off at a bit of a tangent I know but broadly speaking the people most vocal against the use of gps devices in fell races are the locals, you know the very locals that run the race routes all the time in their club runs

    13.49 miles, 3,636 feet, 3 hours 36 minutes: over to Silver How, Lang How and Swinescar Pike, taking in Loughrigg top both ways. Sunshine and clouds, warm, no wind - perfect vest weather. Terrain dry. Lots about, particularly on the road up from Miller bridge.

    Found myself in Mike T territory today for a recce of the 5 Passes route. Up over Loughrigg from Grasmere, then over Wansfell and down to Troutbeck. Left the route there and headed up the Trout Beck valley. Never been up there before and it was lovely, absolutely deserted, but for some sheep and a solitary deer. Rejoined the route at Threshthwaite Mouth, over to Kirkstone, up Red Screes, down Scandale and the Coffin Route back Grasmere.

    That is a decent outing! The ascent of Red Screes from Kirkstone is tough when it is warm and legs are tired. Well done.

    I did that climb up Red Screes, after going Patterdale, Boredale Hause, High Street, Stoney Cove Pike, Kirkstone (2hrs15)

    It was probably the toughest section of the whole run (which continued onto Fairfield, St Sunday, Patterdale). In fact i think it was the only point which I came to a standstill at any point without good reason (ie drink etc)

    Yeah, it's a bit of bugger, definitely a case of try not think about it too much and one foot in front of the other.

    Sounds like a good loop, Travs. When I was BG training I often used to park at Hartsop and do similar: up Hartsop Dodd, round to High Street, down to Boredale Hause, across to Helvellyn, Fairfield, Red Screes, Stoney Cove Pike and back down over Hartsopp Dodd. A good run out!

    It's basically the Hodgson Brothers Relay route, but without dropping down to leg changeover points. It's actually featured on their website as the "Hodgson Four".... though i think the route you mention probably beats it for severity!

    But yes, numerous loops around Patterdale to be had... one of my favourite valleys.

    8.46 miles, 3,306 feet, 3 hours 5 minutes: Tilberthwaite - Coppermines Valley - Levers Hause - Swirl How - Wetside Edge - Tilberthwaite. With 5 others from AAC. Overcast - in cloud/mist above about 1,000 feet. No wind, rather humid. Terrain damp and slippery in places. Not many on the fells, but the car parks were full and town is busy.

    9.22 miles, 3,684 feet, 2 hours 53 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. Mainly overcast with the occasional spell of sunshine. A refreshing quite strong wind on the top - perfect vest weather. Terrain dry. Lots on the steps up to the Pike. Roads busy.

    Mike i am looking forward (with a fair degree of trepidation) to your club's Great Lakes Race a week on saturday, having not ran it before, but been over most of the course in the past.
