The Lakeland 50 is around the corner!

Tomorrow at 11:30am our team of 4 - Giles Hodges, Fergus Bates, Jason Lloyd and Peter Walker-Birch will be starting this year's Lakeland 50.

For those that are unaware of the event it involves walking and with a little bit of motivation from Fergus (our Morpeth Harrier's secret weapon) running 50 miles in 24 hours.

Added to the mix is 3,100 metres of ascent and remember what comes up must come down!

We start at the Dalemain Estate and make headway to Ambleside hopefully before closing time and then a short crawl of approx. 15 miles to the finish at Coniston and home to bed !!.

The monies raised are going to the Charity - Nuture Lakeland (FIx The Fells). This Charity needs funds to help to repair and maintain the fells for future generations.

It's not going to be easy and all four of us have had plenty of injuries to hold up our training along the way.

We have raised £840 so far and are still collecting so any more donations will make a huge difference.
A big thank you from team ARE WE NEARLY THERE YET?!!

Giles, Fergus, Jason and Peter
