Great way to spend your birthday. A fantastic day running Leg 2 of the Bob Graham with Brett and Mark. Cloudy throughout the day, with soft snow and some ice on the tops, visibility very poor, but not bad enough to need to take bearings. One missed top (Watson’s Dodd) so had to recip. Very tough section, out and back to Fairfield, wanted to give up! Jonesy ran out of water but decided not to mention this to us. 5hrs 41minutes for the leg, with a distance of 15.5 miles so not in the right ball park to take on the full challenge...yet. Cough head, great Dodd, Watson’s Dodd, stybarrow Dodd, raise, white side, helvellyn LM, Helvellyn, nethermost pike, dollywaggon pike, Fairfield, and seat sandal.Jim Baz17/11/2019
Final summit of the day, going from Swirls car park over White Side, Raise and Stybarrow Dodd. Descended west with no path, then towards Castle Rock, picking up the path near Legburthwaite that crossed Stanah Gill and continued above the wall back to the carpark.LizH15/10/2019

Marsden Racers Billy Bland challenge. Night leg.tsar.nathan07/09/2019
A very wet and very windy fell run in the clouds. Having parked just outside Dockray near Green How, took the path along the Aura Beck Valley to Dowthwaitehead. Then took a long steep climb upto Birkett Fell and Hart Side. properly in the weather now, no time for stopping, continued along the ridge to Green Side, and up onto Stybarrow Dodd, Watson's Dodd and Great Dodd. Although originally planned to continue over to Clough Head, due to the weather, decided to call it a day, and drop down over Randerside and Brute Moss. Under the clouds was a fairly pleasant and still day. Having joined the Old Coach Road I met a mass a sheep being heard into a next field just outside Lucy's Wood. Having skirted round the edge of these sheep. Then a short way down the road back to the car, wet and very muddy, I drove over to Ulswater for a wash. 2hrs: 14.5km; 611mByronHaywood04/09/2019
Did 10 summits (5 Wainwrights) starting from High Row, near Dockray, on Matterdale Common. Went along the Old Coach Road, up Mosedale Beck, over Clough Head, Calfhow Pike, Little Dodd, Great Dodd, Watson's Dodd, Stybarrow Dodd, White Stones - Green Side, Hart Side, Birkett Fell and Brown Hills, descending to Dowthwaitehead and along the Aira Valley. Took 7 hours, all in strong westerly wind - the middle part included some horizontal rain showers bookended by some beautiful sunshine.mavero1017/08/2019
