Richard Slack is fell racing again

Carrock Fell is in the Northern Fells of the Lake District – back of Skiddaw group.

Short category A (lots of ascent) 6 mile fell race organised by northern Fells group. Very windy today and sadly most of the uphill to Carock was due into the strong Westerly wind. From Carrock Fell top a couple of miles across flat but boggy ground and then up onto High Pike. Wind assisted power descent over West Fell back to start.

1 hour 2 mins and 32 seconds – safely in bottom quartile I would expect – these fell runners are a hardy fit lot!
