Planning on doing Helvellyn and the Dodds fell race on 28th May staying in Keswick, traveling up on the Saturday, race on Sunday, may do part of Borrowdale recce on Monday if weather fine .
Weather was great, this doesn’t happen very often for Skyline so had to do it, even if I had to walk. Ground still covered with snow and very boggy on top, it was tough going especially across to Brown Knoll trig. The melting snow turned the brooks into rivers. Feet were freezing yet body sweating in the sunshine. Managed to beat the 3 cut off points just, the last one at Grindslow Knoll by 3 minutes. Tasty pie and peas at finish. 4 Wildhogs finished, Anton, Andy, Phil and me. You really need to train for this race, one day!
