Alcohol is good for you anyway. It dilates the blood vessels and improves blood flow to those working muscles. My half cup of sherry gave me a real zip and powered me at top speed past the MOD range in the (general) direction of Peel Tower! It was a superb event, as always. I'll be back next year.

Yes. A great day out. The fantastic views and sunny weather overhead far outweighed the 'gloop' underfoot. Thanks very much to all the organisers and helpers. Daisy dog and I really enjoyed it!

Can't really add to what I wrote last year - appended to this post. The weather was great and the gloop far gloopier than is reasonable! I'm always impressed with the 'spirit' of the East Lancs crowd - always incredibly helpful, smiling and on theme. The views today were magnificent - the early golden sun on the fells particularly striking. Thanks again everyone. Garfield

(2006 post) What do you expect from a 25 mile hike around moors and fields in January ? Mud. Lots of it. Plus the occasional bog and quite a few paddy-fields. The event attracted a big entry - over 250 - and the 18-mile option meant people had a chance for a more leisurely day out. The food was plentiful and everyone seemed in good spirits - especially the gentleman at the Bull Hill checkpoint who was offering literally that ! It's five years since I last did this event and I remembered it as being a toughie - which it certainly was. But it's a good course with just enough navigational twists to keep you on your, er, toes. "Thank You" to whoever put the red & white flags out - you did a good job.
Superb hotpot at the finish. Thanks to everyone. - Garfield
