Tour de Helvellyn

Saturday 17 December 2016

38 miles (61.1 km); 7,874 feet (2,400 m) of ascent

Starting in Askham the route generally follows footpaths and bridleways to St Peter's Church near Martindale; Boredale (Boardale on the British Mountain Map); Patterdale; Sticks Pass; Stannah Beck; Swirls car park; Birkside Ghyll; Raise Beck; Grisedale Tarn; Patterdale again and back to Askham. There were quite a few runners eagerly anticipating some wild winter weather featuring snow, gales, driving rain, poor visibility and generally exciting conditions. They were denied the chance to test themselves in adverse weather conditions since there were fairly clear skies; no rain or any form of precipitation whatsoever and good visibility. The unseasonally mild conditions while disappointing some runners did enable the scenery to be appreciated in full which was well worth looking at.
