On Saturday 20th July I will set off from Kirkstone Pass to cover part of the 1962 Lake District Mountain Trial route.
I've now completed 51 Mountain Trials, but 1962 is the only year I started and didn't finish. On that day the weather was dreadful, with a storm coming through as the race got underway. Most of the field retired early on it was that rough. It was cramp that got me and I dropped down off Dollywagon with George Rhodes and John Disley.
The route I'll follow on 20th July is: Kirkstone Pass - Stoney Cove Pike -
Thornthwaite Crag - High Street - Angle Tarn - Place Fell - Patterdale.
You're very welcome to join me for another great day out in the fells (I'll put a planned schedule on the BrathayChallenges website
Thank you for supporting me and helping to change the lives
of some of our most disadvantaged young people.
