Dirty Double Weekend

Posted: Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

” Dirty Double” is the name for the last weekend of the Lakeland Trail series. There was the Helvellyn Trail on Saturday 3rd, which was run by Steve Perrin, John Gray, Nick Thompson and Andy Lang. On Sunday 4th there was the Ullswater Trail, run by John Gray, Nick Thompson, Gary Spivey and Andy Lang.

Conditions for the Helvellyn Trail where cold but good with the first fall of snow on the hilltops.





Sunday was very sunny for the Ullswater Trail race, which takes a Steamer from Glenridding over to Howtown and runners run back from there.


Most of the Ullswater trail was over rocky ground but there were also areas of slippy grass!
