SLMM - 2/3 July

Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon
SLMM Website| Results
I joined Crispin as a last minute replacement for Damon Rodwell in the Scafell Class. We failed to match Damon and Crispin's usual high standard of finishing 2nd, but managed a 3rd place despite a few dithery moments trying to find checkpoints. The 4th team very nearly caught us in a mad dash for the penultimate checkpoint, but we did just enough to hold them off.
The routes started at Gatesgarth farm by Buttermere and crossed the Ennerdale hills for a mid-way camp in Wasdale next to Joss Naylor's farm at Greendale, before returning back across Ennerdale on Sunday.
According to my Suunto X6HR, the total climb each day was, Day 1 - 7270ft, Day 2 - 5150ft
Day 1 - Profile Day 2 - Profile
Day 1 - Our Route Day 2 - Our Route
