Cloud cover kept most of the day slate grey, but as if by magic, they all rolled away in time for the starter's whistle of the 2009 Special Steeplechase event.
Although I've run this route hundreds of times as a pleasant evening jog, this year it was time to knuckle down, leave the comfort zone and go for it.
Results from tonights race are pasted on the website, Grahame will be doing a full report very soon, but from all those who took part in the race, Grahame 'HAPPY 50th BIRTHBAY' Pictures from tonights race can be found on Alistairs web pages at www.fellrunningpictures.co.uk
May Bank Holiday saw the 12th running of the GL3Day organised by ex
Shropshire lad and Mercia Member, Joe Faulkner and his wife Lindsey, the Event is billed as
an adventure for tuff mountain folk, this year the runners started in
Thornthwaite west of Keswick, the first nights' camp was in Wasdale, running via
Crummock Water & Ennerdale. Day 2 camp was near Thirlmere, having
gone up Steeple, Great End, Glaramara, Ullscarf & Steel Fell,
The final day started off with Helvellyn, before heading West back to
Thornthwaite, via Robinson and Outside, a truly spectacular tour of
O.K. then, what’s all this ‘special’ nonsense about?
So glad you asked. It will be all the usual Sheinton stuff of prizes in the church pews with an extra twist for 2009.
There’ll be even more prizes this year, as I’m personally putting in an
extra half dozen, each of which could be won by anyone in the field.

Richard Roberts of Eryri & Andi Davies of Mercia were separated by the closest of margins at the end of six race series, Following the Cardingmill Canter, race five of the series, the two had been separated by 3 percentage points with Andi Davies just in the lead, all was going to be left to the Wrekin Fell Race, the final race in the series. The senario was complicated, had Andi run then it would have been a straight winner takes all, but Andi was not going to be there, so it was calculators out to work out what Rich would have to do to win, the situation was further complicated
Results are now on line, please check results page or Race series page
