Three Shire Fell Race

John Helme & Carl Bell vying for the lead

The fifth race in the Lakeland Classics trophy is the Three Shires Fell race. Opting not to race I headed out into the persistent rain in support mode. Despite a large number of photographers none of the runners opted to ford the waist deep river just after the start so I headed up on to Lingmoor to get some photos.

Keswick AC's Julie Carter in 3rd place

Wendy Dodds chasing hard in 4th position

The crowd going wild!
