Just one Barlicker in this tough Lakeland classic - Gary Bradley. Entries were limited to 120 of which 30 took the short route and 90, including Gary took the long one. Gary enjoyed the day out and commented on it as follows:
An absolutely belting day out, but the hot weather did take its toll early on until there were streams in which to cool off. The 22 mile, 8,250ft route is brutal with long steep climbs, steep descents & rough ground. Wasdale lays claim to be the toughest Lakes AL, but after yesterday I’m not so sure - this is one severe test of fitness & perseverance. Just what a great fell race should be. And the refreshments provided at the finish by the organisers are second to none, even beer on tap!
