Wet weather, turning to snow . . .

Quick update on the local weather.

The weather has been grim of late, with heavy rain and snow over the tops today. The ground under foot is utterly sodden, with anything that might have been muddy previously, is currently knee deep!

If it stays like this we’d ask you to think about your footwear as normal road shoe may struggle in the mud. Also, ensuring that everyone has full FRA kit will be essential.

At the end of the day, the mud and weather is all part of the challenge and one of the reasons why we love off-road/fell running.
