Borrowdale Fell Race

Start of the 2011 Borrowdale Fell race

My injuries from the Lakeland 100 meant that today I was out supporting folk in the classic Borrowdale Fell Race. Heavy rain just before the start made the conditions fairly greasy and there were plenty of scraped knees and elbows on show as they came through Sty Head Tarn. There was loads of support here handing out jelly babies and water including Joss who'd popped up from Wasdale.
