For those not familiar with it, the Fellsman is a high level traverse covering more than 60 miles over very hard rugged moorland. The event climbs over 11,000 feet in its path from Ingleton to Threshfield.
Most of the route is over privately owned land, the use of which is secured by the organisers for the weekend only. This being the case, the route does not follow well defined footpaths, so the entrants’ navigational skills with a map and compass are tested as well as their physical fitness.
It is four years since Gary Bradley entered this event, so he thought that he would give it another go. Despite the weather, he had a great day finishing in 15:46:11 which was a PB, knocking over 50 minutes off his previous time.
