The Cumbrian Traverse is a south to north, high-level traverse of 21 Lakeland peaks involving some 35 miles and 12000 feet of ascent. Devised by Sue and Dick Courchee, it was first completed in 2005. It starts at Broughton Mills in Dunnerdale and finishes at the Moot Hall, Keswick, although it may be completed in either direction.
It was a fine night to start off the 2011 Summer Series, we will not want to complain if we have another 5 nights with weather like it was tonight, the race had a great turnout too, 115 runners completed the rush to the summit and back, no doubt boosted by the welcome inclusion of juniors for the first time in many years, well done to Simon and Jackie for that.
The 2011 Shropshire Summer Series will start tomorrow night with the Wrekin Streak, 7.30 from Fairy Glen Car park. For the first time for a long time Junior Races will be taking place at this event. The under 14 race will start at 7.15 and the over 14's will start with the main race at 7.30 See you there!
