Green Burn Horseshoe

One final run today before I head off to the States for a week. But a good week, 6 days of running and over 13,000 feet of vertical ascent this week.

Conditions today were again mixed. Overnight rain was clearing as first light came and we had a short 2 or 3 hour weather window before the next frontal system moved through. Relatively mild (7c) and very wet underfoot.

A more social affair than I’ve been used to lately, joining Ambleside AC  for their first Sunday training session of the year.

Nice short horseshoe route around the tops surrounding green burn to the north of Grasmere – over Steel Fell before tracing along the faint trods that lead around to Calf Crag and then back over Gibson Knott and Helm Crag.
