This race is another of Joe Faulkner’s excellent NAV4 events, this one in the eastern Lake District and taking in the summits of Loadpot Hill, Helvellyn, Whiteside and Place Fell.  If you’ve run the Tour de Helvellyn winter race you’ll be familiar with some of the route, but this one goes to the summits rather than crossing the passes.  There could be snow and ice, as long as global warming holds off at the end of this winter.
