    No, never. I've walked it, but that's it. Can't wait (as always!).

    Up here for the week so would be rude not to do it. Just been up in the glorious sunshine this afternoon - no idea what the correct route is, but as long as there's company at the back, who cares :-)

    Indeed, glad you could make it. I missed my time by 59 secs - have to get faster, maybe not eat so much flapjack!!

    Shame about the sub-40. I think we all deserved a couple of cakes after that.

    Was nice to meet a forumite anyway!

    Tough race for a little mountain!

    Rachel McCormack finished in a time of 1 hour, 45 minutes and 50 seconds.

    The prizes and trophies had been handed out, results compiled, the marquee had been packed away and the runners had long gone home... but we Amblesiders don't leave anybody behind - nor I guess do any host club! I counted at least seven marshalls, helpers and organisers who stood in the dark and waited at the finish.

    The finish tape remained and the stopwatch continued. When Rachel and her entourage of five or six crossed the line we had a couple of bottles of wine, some cakes and energy drinks on hand, not to mention a round of applause which rang out across the darkness of the park.
    Why walk when you can run.
