Sunday in Coniston (Lake District) started off wet but ended up just being very cold. Coniston was the venue for the Mines Advisory Groups Iron Mag Challenge; a 3 stage race which entailed a 5 mile canoe around lake Coniston, a 25 mile mile mountain bike ride through Grizedale and finally a walk (some ran) up and down the Old Man of Coniston.

The winning team manged the whole challenge in just over 8 hours which was a fine effort! Other teams took a more leisurely pace though the runners up had a team member wearing a mankini for the whole challenge (ouch!!) which must have slowed them down. Heres a link to more pictures from the event: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mag-photos/sets/72157630065683576/

The picture above shows the first few teams setting off on a cold and wet morning on lake Coniston.
