A select band of Abbeys (Dominic Nurse, Greg Weatherhead, Martin Shaw and 2nd claimer Matt John) traveled to the Lakes to compete in the Langdale Horseshoe fell race, which is a brutal course over 14 miles and 4500′, taking in some of the high fells including Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and Pike ‘O Blisco.
It started wet and cloudy which didn’t help navigation and made parts of the course very slippery and resulting in a number of nasty injuries. Two runners were airlifted off the fells by Mountain Rescue. But we all got round safely and in reasonable times in a field of nearly 500 runners. No times published yet, but positions I have so far:
