 Dave,there was a guy in the 2013 race who was 73 but from what I can recall he didn't make CP1,retired somewhere near Harrop Dale.
 
  Red jacket and blue pack on the right.Perhaps you remember him as it was a small field,at least compared to the size of the field over the last few years.

Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

Good luck Dave and anyone else on the forum doing it.  I enjoy following this each year, more so now Iíve actually walked it, but I can only imagine the conditions and taking less than a week to do it! Always something to look forward to after the Christmas celebrations!  :D

Thanks for the best wishes everyone, much appreciated. I have decided that I will try and raise some funds for Prostrate cancer research, following the recent passing of my brother in law and the fact that the guy who gave up his place in the Spine race for me, has in the last few months been diagnosed, operated on and been given the all clear but still receiving after care treatment for Prostrate cancer.
Tonyk, Yes I know the guy he was in fact 68 years, a member of the LDWA. Some time later he asked me if Id like to partner in long distance events, I agreed but have not heard from him since.

Very excited to follow this year's race and good luck to Dave.


One interesting development this year is the number of runners from this year's and last year's Tor des Geants (also sponsored by Montane). The 2016 winner (Oliviero Bosatelli)is running, and there are a couple of women (Daphne Derouche and Harrier Kjaer) who were in the top 20 females in the 2017 race. Will be really interesting to see how they fare against runners who have more experience of Pennine Way type conditions!


I'll be cheering on Jim Mann and Carol Morgan though :)

 I see it starts as a front brings heavy rain followed by wintry showers and gales apparently...not for the faint hearted ???
