We all (myself, Jane Becky and Emma) went up to Cumbria at the weekend staying the Friday night at the Borrowdale Youth Hostel before travelling the few miles to the start of the Anniversary Wa, which is the name for the junior races.
Emma seemed to do quite well last year so we thought we would let her loose again! Plus any excuse to go to Cumbria!
A great route and the weather was OK. 24 miles and 6,500 feet according to my Gizmo.
I nearly retired after CP3 (Heath Mynd) because I 'twanged' my right knee on the descent - excruciating pain for a bit that reduced me to hopping on my left leg! It slowed me down quite a bit, but the pain had subsided by the time I got to CP4 (a food stop) so I carried on. I'd miss marked CP9 and CP11 on the map but still managed to fall straight onto them! I didn't realise I'd miss marked them until I found them in unexpected places! Finished in 6h 5m - disappointing.
