Walk 35:00 
A weekend in the Dales, staying at Chapel le Dale can mean only one thing. The 3 Peaks. Its a classic race that I've always thought I should run but whenever I've looked at it I've decided it looks bit like a trail race. Last weekend Mark was singing its praises. Walked it with Dieter as part of his training for the JNC, plus I haven't had a propper long run for 3 months so walking made for good time on my feet with gentle effort. running bits were easy jofgging down the hills apart from off Wernside which I ran off properly, leaving D to walk off.
A really good day, it started wintery with light snow showers on a stiff arctic breeze, these cleared and the afternoon was bright and sunny, though chill.
And the route, well its certainly a trail race, but there is something quite classic about it, probably that you get such a great view of the route that you are on, a real sense of covering the distance with the peaks standing across it. Amazing limestone terrain to be seen too. p5.5k
