Tour de Helvellyn 38mi. 20/12/2014.
The 5th running of this event gave us the best conditions yet - milder, less wet and the obligatory gale over Sticks Pass subsided later on.

It was 1.8 miles longer than usual, taking the optimum route up to 38.4 miles. A reroute around the far side of Thirlmere resulted from the closure of the forestry on its eastern side.

The NAV4 refuelling spread at the finish in Askham was the best yet.

Bring on 2015.
