Route change on 3 peaks fell race
For those of you doing the 3 peaks fell race, you can look forward to getiing your quickest time ever! The route has slightly changed and there is some improvement to the path = quicker time
The changes can be seen on the map here.
Given our very wet weather for the last 12 months we could have the drought to end all droughts between now and the end of April and the terrain would still not be dry by race day. Trail shoes will be ideal, ie good balance between grip and comfort.
You can buy 3 Peaks Harveys maps from Pete Bland. Only costs a few £ and I would highly recommend as meets race kit requirements and takes up no room at all unlike a big waterproof map.
Fluid and snacks obviously down to personal preference on intake, plus think you probably need some emergency food (some fell races insist on this. You can have a bottle waiting for you at Ribblehead. I've got round on one bottle, some gells and sweets I think but can't honestly remember in detail.
If you go on to the Fellrunners association website there is a forum on there and a 3 Peaks thread and you'll get more specific (and useful) advise there.
Have a great day. I'm marshalling on Ingleborough. It's a fab event.
I'm ordering a heatwave...
Joking apart when I've done the race we've had bizarrely warm weather when the week or two before I've reccied in snow! I kind of think one day there has got to be a bad weather one, but lets hope it's not this year - think we've had our fair share of winter already.
Good luck on the day. It's a great race.
