I spent Bank Holiday weekend (runs up to last Monday in August in UK, except Scotland), marshalling on Adidas TERREX adventure race in Lake District, north west England. It's not called the wettest part of the UK for nothing...
Andy (my sister's husband) and I competed in Wansfell class of Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon in the English Lake District on 3rd / 4th July 2010. Finished where we hoped, just above half way overall in field, which included all male pairs and female pairs. We missed being counted as veterans by me being 6 months too young. Lovely sunny day 1, very wet and windy day 2, with impaired visability due to low cloud and driving rain. Very enjoyable. More details and photos to follow later.
Further details & photos, as promised:
Those of you who live where snowfall is regular, may wonder why I'm so happy about snow. But it's pretty rare in Cambridge, south east England. I had a day's nordic skiing in a local park in February 2009, and was able to introduce a mother and her 2 daughters (all fortunately had roughly the same size feet as me) to the sport. However, Friday 18th Dec 2009 was even better. By chance, it was the Away Day of MRC Epidemiology Unit, where I started working as a Research Nurse in August 2009.
