Turner Landscape Fell Race - Saturday 11th August

 

Late posting of last weekend’s stay in the Duddon Valley.  Enjoyed supporting Spike and his team on this one.  Ian and I marshalled on Dow Crag in great conditions.  A short stroll across the fields from High Moss to Registration at Turner Hall Farm to pick up instructions and race numbers.

Heading home we stopped briefly at Haverthwaite Station just in time to see one of the steam trains departing.  Always good to see Smile
