Just A Perfect Day

I’ll get put together a more detailed report in due course and I am still ‘gathering’ photos taken yesterday as well as trying to get to grips with Flickr so that as many as possible can be shared.

The weather was perfect, the ground was perfect, support on the hills and at the roads couldn’t have been better and Joss came up to meet us at Sty Head. I reached Greendale Bridge 14 hours and 14 minutes after leaving Pooley Bridge, comfortably within my 15 hour allowance, with a posse of other runners to help celebrate my successful traverse.

Ian Kirk posted some his photos of the first two legs, taken from just after first light and onwards, on his blog here

Rhiannon George took this portrait of Joss at Sty Head.
