The Three Peaks 2013

It was snowing whilst the runners were on Penyghent, but after that it was just cold and breezy.
Joe Symonds tried to run away from the field, but his Salomon teammate Tofol and Carl Bell went with him. He'd certainly dropped them by Ingleborough as he was a clear five minutes ahead. But I don't think it was a lonely run for Joe as the supporting crowds were shouting encouragement to him, recognising him from winning last year and as the son of Hugh Symonds of Kendal Athletic Club, who won in 1984, 1985 and 1987. Joe improved on last year's time by about a minute (when he ran 2:55:58.)

The FRB team were giving out free Jelly Babies on a first come, first served basis and we took the following photographs before the last rise up Ingleborough.
