5 Peaks Challenge, The Final Chapter

The last I hear everyone had made it up Carrantuohill, Ireland's highest peak via the Devils Ladder Route and at 11:00pm last night they where all down the  pup drinking the local brew either that or fast asleep in the corner after another epic trip, we'll done everyone concerned and safe journey home today, I'm sure a full report will follow on the adventure of the weekend

5 Peaks Challenge - Leg 4

The team made it to ferry and headed out across the Irish Sea for the last two peaks of the challenge, they will have driven through Belfast and down the coast to Newcastle, setting off runing at first light over Donard Bridge up a wooded glen, this is the shortest of the runs they will do over the weekend, its about 3mile but rises steeply all the way from sea level to the summit at 853m, navigation is made easy by first following the Glen River to the saddle between Slieve Commedagh and Slieve Donnard, you then turn left and follow The Mourne Wall, a 2m high dry stone wall that encircles the

5 Peaks Challenge Leg 3

Sounds like our hero's had a somewhat damp experience north of the border as they scaled the highest peak of the trip, but everyone made it up and down The Ben to complete the classic 3 peaks in well under the 24 hours, last hears of they where heading for the ferry to Belfast, and while the rest of us are fast asleep they will be thrown out of the coach in Newcastle, Northern Ireland to find the way to the highest peak in The Mountains of Mournes , if they are lucky they will get to the top to spectacular views over the sea as the sun rises on the last day of their challenge

Pontesbury Fell Race

Shropshire's best fell runners turned out tonight for the annual Pontesbury Fell Race, admittedly they were not all on top form, but with Tim Davies, Mike James, Andi Davies and Roland Stafford all going head to head, it has to be one of the best racing fields seen in any Shropshire race other than one of the English or British championships. The leader at the start was Clewdian runner Stanley Charles, but once on the hill the Davies boys went to the front, at the top it was Andi who was first, on the decent Tim took the lead and was push all the way to the line by Mike Jam
