The Lakeland Classics Series began in 2002, its purpose was to instigate support for the dwindling number of entrants at the longer Lakeland races, specifically Duddon, Wasdale, Ennerdale and Dockray Helvellyn. Two of these Long Races were required.
Then one from the Short Races - Borrowdale, Langdale and Three Shires.
With the sad demise of Dockray Helvellyn, Borrowdale moved into the Long Races.
Though most worthy courses, Borrowdale, Langdale and Three Shires are very popular, and need little support from the Series. Buttermere Horsehoe, if included in the Series, will really benefit. It remains to be seen where it fits in - maybe Great Lakes Run could also be used, and ditch one/some of the short popular races?
Food for thought, nothing more...
