Easter Greetings

Kay & I just back from the Easter evening celebration at the parish Church in Wigton; we've had family at Blaithwaite for the weekend (see kite flying photos); first campers of the new season on site & our regular Easter visitors both before & after the weekend. Its been a great week for activity with fell running, walking & mine exploration.

Good Friday
Fell Run - The Dodds

With: Martin
Weather: 22 degC; no wind
Approx 12 miles; 3,500' ascent; 3hr 25 mins

This was effectively the second leg of the Bob Graham Round cut in half & made into a circular route. Start & finish from Hill Top Farm in St Johns in the Vale. Ascent of Clough Head from the Old Coach Rd was brutal; fantastic running on the ridge: especially Gt Dodd - Watsons & Watsons - Stybarrow. Descent of Sticks Pass played havoc with the knees. I was well pleased with completing the 4 mile road run to finish in less than half an hour at the hottest part of the day.
