Fun in the hills

Six local athletes joined Steve for an excellent weekend of mountain marathon training in the South Lakes hills.

Checking route in hills above Coniston

After setting up camp in Hawkshead in a hail shower the intrepid adventurers learnt various navigation skills in the hills above Coniston. Fortunately the weather was much better up there. After a quick shower and change we spent the evening eating, drinking and socialising in the Sun Inn before settling down in our tents for the night. It was freezing!!

On Sunday, after breakfast and packing up, the group did a 3hr score course in pairs then went to the Ship Inn for some feedback over a drink before heading home. Everyone did very well and our next adventure is now being planned.
Happy group after finishing on Sunday
