Lakes Meet Up Sunday 5th July

4 of our Vegan Runners club members from the North headed off for a 25 mile social run around the North Lakes last weekend. The run was hosted and led by seasoned ultra runner Neil Ford, who was able to impart some useful knowledge of proper fuelling and hydrating on the go. He was joined by Phil Davies, Luisa Rabanel and Carrol Dudley, all looking forward to the challenge. The group was united at one point with Luisa’s partner Oscar and his cute charge, Ethel, an Italian Greyhound who clearly enjoyed running with the pack.

Starting out in the shadow of Skiddaw, a circuit was completed which took in 3 fells before dropping back down around the lake shore of Ullswater and into Keswick. The weather in the main was perfect, allowing the freedom of running in the countryside to be properly enjoyed, with clear vistas to be appreciated from the many vantage points along the way. That said, a deluge of rain in the last hour made sure the runners were well and truly cooled off before the drive home. A great day was had by all, and, as the others left, Neil was ready to start his second circuit…
