Who else is in, and any recommendations for good campervan spots for the weekend? Looking forward to this, having done the full for the last couple of years. Will be warming up with Helvellyn 3 weeks earlier, and recce'ing both 22-28th July:

I am thinking about this one for next year. I am doing Helvellyn this year.

The bike course on Triathlon X looks brutal. The Struggle & both ways up Hardknott pass. Shocked

Tough ride, loved it Smile
With compact and a 32 on the back I felt the front wheel lift more readily than on previous occasions when I had a 28.

I didn't have a compact for the inaugural half-X.

And walked all the way up Hard Knott and Wrynose. Twice.

It's so demeaning. Very Happy

Looking forward to it. Didn't do it last year so new course for me (done a couple of times from Wasdale).
