The Fellsman

Saturday 16 April 2016

61 miles; 11,000'

Weather : mild and good (patches of snow remaining in places) but very cold winds and colder later with some retiring due to hypothermia and frost-nip. The bogs froze with a crust of ice on top at night with the ice not being strong enough to support a runner leading to feet and legs plunging into icy waters.

Conditions : even boggier and wetter than usual!

Starters: 312

Finishers: 217

Retired: 94

Disqualified: 1 (lost tally)

Fastest Man: Konrad Rawlik 11:31

Fastest Woman: Karen Nash 15:45

Laurence Piercy: Joint 8th 13:18 (Lawrence?) DPFR

Steven Jones: 113th 19:41 DPFR

Neil Drake: Joint 168th 22:27 DPFR

John Vernon: 183rd 23:17 DPFR

At the awards and presentations the next morning (with some runners/walkers still out and yet to finish) someone received an award for their 40th Fellsman (36 successful completions) which gives a hint of how addictive The Fellsman is. It is perhaps roughly equivalent to two laps of the Three Peaks Fell Race followed by a Warts Run in terms of distance, elevation and the terrain and bogs. No wonder people keep coming back year after year.
