Fellsman 61 mile/11000ft 9/10th May

Congratulations To Karl Taylor who took a massive 2hrs 24 mins from his previous PB to finish 41st in this years Fellsman in a time of 15.19 mins

A report from Karl indicated that it wasn’t a bad day, starting a little cold and drizzly, a bit more rain followed, by two hours of pretty shocking weather, driving wind and hail that made the going quite difficult. After this though the rest of the day was okay just the continued wind. The majority of the course was across pretty difficult terrain which he found hard going, Fleet Moss in particular this year was pretty tough with Karl going up to his knees at least twice – all part of the fun. Great food again kept everyone going.!! Karl felt pretty strong even at the end, with only one real low between Redshaw and Fleet Moss when he found it difficult to eat. He is now feeling much more confident about his BG at the end of June

Ian and Pauline Charters were also taking part but walking, they finished in 23:33 190th place after being grouped with a slow party during the night, and making a nav error on Great Whernside. 238 competed..
