Most seemed to be contouring around to the left well before the top of Sail, but I went over the top - the amount of climb was trivial and it seemed shorter, and traversing on steep slopes is never much fun.
    I went over the top as I remembered a checkpoint there in previous years and an instruction not to use the traverse. Prior to either of those I always used the traverse line. It didn't help that there was a guy in a yellow cag standing at the top of the short climb!

    I understand there should have been a marshal/checkpoint on top of Sail but this did not happen because of a shortage of manpower.

    Cancelled - just had this email:
    We regret to inform you that due to the current Covid19 pandemic we have taken the decision to postpone the race until Saturday 24th October 2020. This decision has not been taken lightly but due to the potential for spreading this virus to family members & friends. Also, we have some members of the current support team in self isolation after returning from abroad, this situation may possibly worsen, meaning we would not have enough marshal/support. We have acted swiftly to secure a date later in the year to ensure the race takes place. We sincerely hope you can make the substituted date in October, but if not you will be entitled to a full 10 refund. We thank you for continuing to support the race & hope yo see you for a great day out later in the year. Any questions, please contact us but bear in mind we may be very busy sorting everyone out so it may take a little time.
    Going downhill fast

    Re-arranged for my wedding day. 12 start. 14:30 ceremony just outside Cockermouth.

    Doable.

    Probably not advisable.
