Lakeland Trail Series

22/03/2017

The 2017 Lakeland Trail Series got off to a soggy but very successful start with Dumfries Running Club members taking part in the 18km challenge at Cartmel.

Despite the driving heavy rain and strong gale force winds that were forecast holding off, the start time still had to be delayed due to the waterlogged conditions.

Once on route runners could take in panoramic views of both Morecambe Bay and the surrounding peaks. Underfoot conditions and visibility were variable. Along the way an open water crossing, oozy treacle like mud and bottomless murky bogs all added to the adventure. It quickly became clear why the route is often referred to as the ‘Sticky Toffee Trail’ when wet. If you can’t go over it, under it or around it, you have to go straight through! The only fast section that allowed runners to pick up good speed was the home straight.

Andy Dickson was the first club runner to finish in a time of 2:09. He was closely followed by Skye Sarahs in 2:10. Michelle McCrindle came next in 2:27. Laura Broatch and Saty Burns stuck together, supporting each other throughout. They finished the challenge in 2:39 and were cheered across the line.
