Preview

Angela and Spencer Modica (W45 / M50) and Pete and Sam Shirvington (M45 / M16) have signed up for the weekender at Howgill Fells on 6/7 July.

The Modicas are tackling a 56km 'advanced' course while the Shirvingtons have chosen the course aimed at newbies, a mere 41km.

The weekend has a reputation of being accessible for new entrants and those enjoying a low key event environment.

Debutants Pete and Sam have already cleared a significant hurdle - borrowing and buying some lightweight kit for less than an eye-watering sum!
