The Fellsman

Saturday 27 April 2019

61 miles; 11,000'

There was a variation of the route for 2019. From checkpoint 15 at Fleet Moss it was necessary to take a diversion downhill following a road and along a valley before climbing back up towards checkpoint 16 at Middle Tongue. Apart from adding about another mile to the route and extra ascent it meant traipsing along on tarmac rather than the rather more pleasant and interesting bogs and mud that regular participants of the Fellsman enjoy so much. I found the road section disheartening but was rejuvenated when rejoining the fells and wading around in the tangled vegetation.

The weather was fairly reasonable. Some folks didn't enjoy the heavy hailstorm late in the afternoon but they were compensated with a relatively warm night. The ground conditions were fairly moist as might be expected for this event.

Starters: 323

Finishers: 220

DNF: 103

Fastest Man: Stuart Walker; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 11:18

Fastest Lady: 7th overall; Sabrina Verjee; 12:23

Chris Lawson: 109th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 19:03

Steven Jones: 116th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 19:44

Sarah Jones-Morris: Joint 132nd; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 21:10

Neil Drake: Joint 134th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 21:26

Richard Needham: Joint 147th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 22:11

John Vernon: 204th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 26:34
