From the crib(yn) to the grave

I took a flexi-half day and travelled over the Bridge - mutter, mutter, fiver, mutter, mutter - to meet up with Helen to recce the best fell race - in the world - ever!

Conditions were good, if a little chilly but once we set off I soon completely didn't warm up. My hands were freezing.

Anyway, we managed to recce the course. I think there are a few places we could optimise the route but as a first attempt it wasn't bad. You see, the Cribyn Race hasn't been run for a good number of years but that's about to change because Helen is bringing it back. It's only a short race - 5.5 miles - but it might be little hilly for one or two, weighing in at tad under 3,000 feet of ascent.

Oh yeah, I should mention the race website will be being updated with all the details as we sort them out. It's one for your diary, 6th June 2009 with the likely kick off at 11am. The website is http://www.cribynrace.org.uk so get over there and check it out - route, pics and more coming soon...
