Saturday 6th June.
The Lake District, Twin Peaks challenge.
After a week of glorious sunshine the weather forecast for Saturday was for rain.
This proved to be correct but there were also strong winds.
A team of local mountain guides set off at 5.30 am to assess the situation.
They reported back that at 2500 ft the conditions were horrendous.
The temperature was 2 degrees, the wind speed was 50 mph and the rain was falling as sleet on the summit.
The event organisers decided that it was too dangerous to allow 250 participants to venture onto the fells.
So it was over to plan B, an alternative lower level route.
This was done at a fast pace and everyone completed the course.
To date I have raised over £400 for the British Heart Foundation so all the aches and pains were worth the effort.
Many thanks to all those that sponsored me.
Time now for a few days rest
Finished, and I got the T-shirt.
