For all those of you who live anywhere near North Yorkshire and Cumbria you wont need to be told about the horrendous weather on Friday evening and Saturday.

The rain fell hard enough on Friday evening that the Marie Curie 5 Peaks Challenge in the Lake District had to be abandoned because the roads to Seathwaite, the event start area, was completely flooded. Although we had developed a plan B route for the walkers the fact that we couldnt actally get anyone to the start brought about the need to cancel. It was obviously dissapointing for the walkers but a new date will be available in the Summer/Autumn!

The other wet and windy event was the Yorkshire Three Peaks on behalf of the Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation. Of the 33 who started less than half finished the day but considering how difficult the conditions were it was a good effort just to step out of the car!!

Its better weather at the moment but looking to deteriorate towards the weekend! Must be another Yorkshire Three Peaks this weekend then….
