A brief write-up by Chris Upson, re-posted here for posterity.
I joined Crispin as a last minute replacement for Damon Rodwell in the Scafell Class. We failed to match Damon and Crispin’s usual high standard of finishing 2nd, but managed a 3rd place despite a few dithery moments trying to find checkpoints. The 4th team very nearly caught us in a mad dash for the penultimate checkpoint, but we did just enough to hold them off.
The routes started at Gatesgarth farm by Buttermere and crossed the Ennerdale hills for a mid-way camp in Wasdale next to Joss Naylor’s farm at Greendale, before returning back across Ennerdale on Sunday.
