The word challenge and Keswick in a race title set the scene.  Add to that timed King of the Mountain and Demon Descent catagories, then times that by 2 and you have our little adventure over the weekend up and over Latrigg Fell twice.

I think I can speak for  both of us by saying it was the most brilliant time ever imaginable - on the first lap!   The 2nd lap was another matter.  Tired, seized up legs in Ian's case and my back having gone into a spasm 3 miles from the end meant I constantly had a 45 degree list and found it impossible to go in a straight line only added to the 'enjoyment'.!!  We have both agreed will be back next year for this marvellously supportive, well organised and most importantly, scenic race.  Thank you Keswick
