Wildboar 24 – Anyone doing it this year or are you staying clear this year??
I understand that they have moved location, got a new course and that the track will be going through the campsite rather than being at the top of a hill suitable for mountain goats like last year!!
So is anyone thinking about doing it or is everyone steering clear?
Had a quick look this morning and it only looks like 5 teams so far…..Posted 9 years agohugo runeSubscriber
We’re putting in 3 teams with probably 4 per team. I thought the set up was good last year and the camping rocked – just a shame about the course.
It’s in a completely different location (north lakes near Keswick) so I’m hoping they’ve taken all the slagging on board and got something exciting lined up.Posted 9 years agoStuSubscriber
16-17th May. Was on the news page of this very site not that long ago:
Clashes with SXC round at Laggan so doubt I’ll be there but some other folk from here (Edinburgh Uni) are thinking about it.Posted 9 years agoparkedtigerMember
I’ve been exploring around Wythop for the past couple of weeks – fairly easy climbs on Sale and Ling Fells with nice (cheeky) descents. There’s also a nice footpath running through a small wood right next to Wythop Hall / farm (with a strange fake animal shooting range). There’s also forestry commission land over that way with regular fire roads and a nice fast descent following a c2c alternate route from Cockermouth down to Wythop Beck / Thornthwaite.Posted 9 years ago
Yep, sounds like some much needed changes have been taken on board. Me and little bro’ have just entered the pairs.Posted 9 years ago
Website update – this was pretty tardy last year too, and gave much cause for concern, as did poor response times for email enquiries. THANKFULLY, it just seems to be the case that they were not the hottest folks on t’interwebnet, and all went wel on the weekend.
Looking forward to it! and tat close to Keswick , means we could almost pop into the town for a swift one between turns!
