Ennerdale Fell Race 2013

Out to support friends who ran this Lakeland classic super long race.  Headed up to Haycock where Mark and I were happy to engage in a little impromptu marshalling before jogging back along the race route.  Great day out in the Lakes, but a little warm for those completing the full route of 23 miles and 7,350ft of climbing.

It wasn’t long before the first man came over Haycock summit, some way ahead of anyone else, Oli held the lead to the end – great run.
