A great day out at the races, but with searing heat the temperatures proved a bit too much for many runners faced with 21 miles over some of the highest summits in Lakeland, including Scafell Pike the highest in England.
Pre-race coffee at the ‘Bridge’
A bit of cloud cover over Scafell
Looking up to Mickledore
Cloud on the Scafells
Looking down to Wast Water
Great Gable from the summit of Scafell Pike
John looking for the first runner
and here he is – Ben Abdelnoor, Ambleside - first over Scafell Pike
Followed by Simon Booth, Borrowdale
Looking back to the hoards on Scafell Pike
For some folk simply walking to the summit is not enough!
