    10.69 miles, 3,489 feet, 3 hours 52 minutes: Loughrigg trails, including Todd Crag, Lily Tarn, down the race route to the road at High Close, and back up to the top via the steps overlooking Loughrigg Tarn. Sunshine - at last - and clouds, with the cloud base at about 1,500 feet at first, higher later. A few minutes of drizzle, lots of rainbows. A moderate wind from the west. Terrain: dry to saturated and everything in between; very slippery in places. Not many walkers on the fell. 8 runners seen, all in the valleys.

Lots of walkers on the fell; car parks in the valley busy. 1 runner seen; an AAC member, he had come up from Troutbeck.

    11.48 miles, 3,092 feet, 3 hours 42 minutes: Loughrigg trails, including down the race route to the road at High Close, down through Deerbolts Woods to Grasmere shore, then back up to the top via Loughrigg Terrace and the steps overlooking Grasmere. Initially overcast, with the cloud base at about 600 feet, but a lot of the clouds melted away as the day progressed. No rain; a moderate breeze from the west. Terrain wet/saturated/slippery. Quite a few walkers about.

    I saw 1 runner - her dog threatened me twice - the first time it was my fault for jumping onto the path, the second time it was again my fault for shouting at the dog, despite the fact that its threatening behaviour came before my shouting. Such a good example of responsible dog ownership.

    12.5 miles, 3,370 feet, 4 hours 9 minutes: Fairfield Horseshoe clockwise from Ambleside, taking the trod to the left of Great Rigg, and the one to the right of Dove Crag; descending mainly on the race side/east of the wall, and going down the rock step. Initially overcast, with the cloud base at about 2,000 feet, later it was mainly above the high tops, and there were patches of blue sky. Intermittent drizzle for the first couple of hours. A moderate wind from the south west. Terrain mainly wet/saturated/slippery, though there were dry rocks in places. I saw about 30 walkers on the fells - 6 on the way up, the rest on the way down. No runners seen.
