Three Shires Fell Race 2013


First blog of black and white images, but the conditions at yesterday’s fell race demanded it.  Not for the faint hearted, the Three Shires may only be 12 miles, but with over 4,000ft of climbing it demands respect.  Having forgot my trainers I didn’t get up onto the high fells to get some action shots of the race, so was restricted to the beginning and the end.  A great day enjoyed by all and everyone safely back…  eventually.  Although with no visibility, many an experienced fellrunner took a detour today, some longer than others.
