The rain stayed off for the duration of the race and despite the boggy conditions underfoot a good race was had by many, with the winner, Rob Hope, completing the five miles and 12500ft of climbing over Fair Snape and Parlick Fells in 37min 01sec. Race pics posted elsewhere a few shots of Bleasdale and of Higher Fair Snape Farm where I was marshalling on the day.
