As one of the relatively small number who managed all three rings, I have to say that notwithstanding the challenge, it was an outstanding event. Personally I found that the return to Shap at the end of each ring really helped me psychologically as I only ever focused on the distance to the end of each ring, rather than the distance to the end of the whole event. And as the night sections for me are always the most exciting, there was never any question about giving up after the second ring.

But even if you cannot manage all three, you must do the Mosedale ring - the Lake District scenery is superb.

Thanks Tony for organising a great day's walking!

I was one of the wimps who only did one Ring, but the Mosedale circuit was superb. The route description said the Swindale waterfalls section was idyllic and it was no overstatement. For a tiny group, Cumbria do a great job. The food was particularly good - rhubarb crumble to die for and the best pie this side of the Northumberland Hundred!
