3 Peaks 2013
Not sure why, I’ve done it for the last 6 years running, got steadily worse each time (never *quite* managed to beat the sub 4hr mark) and thought that after last years epic 50th anniversary, that would be a decent time to call it a day.
But I’m still tempted…Posted 4 years agodavetraveSubscriber
Application for entry opened early doors on Saturday morning (and closes at midnight on the 9th), who’s hoping to get in? (Marshalled at the Nationals in January so got a guaranteed place this year…)
Unless we have even more biblical conditions this time, it should seem like a walk in the park to those of us who did the 50th last year…Posted 4 years agomugsys_m8Subscriber
I’ve put an entry in. First timer yikes!
Waited up late on Sat night ..and then realised I would have to wait up an extra hour as forgot the hour time diff between you lot and us lot.
Spent the time getting uber psyched by watching 3 peaks footage!
Under no illusions that an early entry will make no difference whether I get a place or not. But I have done all I can. Here’s hoping.

My name is in the hat too, was my first time last year…. It couldn’t be any worse than last year could it? 🙂
I need to do more specific training this year, by the halfway point last year my thighs had become solid masses of uselessness resulting in me blowing over at the slightest gust of wind… Still finished with a merit though.
Anyone got any training tips to avoid the front of thigh cramps?Posted 4 years ago
Well my training is largely going to involve running up hills. The bits I was on the bike for were OK.
Training for me last year was doing the local 40mile loops I would normally MTB but CX. You need to prepare yourself for the beating. Plenty of hill climbing helped.
This year I’m going to do some running. I think Ingleborough was my longest run last year.Posted 4 years agoCloverSubscriber
I’m in! Just got the email. 😀
Oddly it doesn’t start ‘Dear mentally afflicted person, your self-flagellation starts here’. Or even ‘I stand before thee, Pen y Ghent the mighty, slayer of bicycles, dealer in despair, trespass on me at your peril’. Nah, just please do not delete this email until you have completed the event.
Time to do some training.Posted 4 years ago
