Not long now till the @theomm in howling howgills. remember 08 in borrowdale but with wind. Then you have the Howgills. Big round hills steep climbs and tough decents. The Rab MM was there in 2009 and it doesnt get easier.
Have a look on the OMM website for more details I think this is my 18th event and hoping to do 21??

On a wet day after sitting plotting and scheming with Joe Faulkner from Nav4 we decided that our eyes were getting square and Keela dog needed a walk. I brought Joe a Tyvek jacket to try out. They look a bit funky and its not writeable what Lindsey said he looked like in it... I was running in one in a cloudy wet windy night and it worked well.
There are many uses for Tyvek try it out on You Tube or Wikipedia
A classic gate post in the grounds of Dalemain House This is the site of the start of the now classic Lakes 50 and half way around the 100 mile route. Come have a look at some history if you are around recceing the course or just in the area.
A great day out in cold crisp clear and somewhat warm day on Blencathra. Jonny Sarah Keela and Talli and I went up Halls Fell Ridge to the summit.
Keela and Talli loved the ridge and showed off their scrambling skills. We met this bloke in Tweed and tie on the summit. Great to see standards are still being kept to. A cold wind was blowing on the summit but the views were fantastic today.
