We will keep you regularly updated with Mountain Running Conditions Reports generally from the North Eastern Fells, but sometime farther afield, depending on where we have been running.
Further to the recent post about the Zip Wire proposals being scrapped in Glenridding, we thought it might be appropriate to post what the LDNPA have to say & the local community in response to Tree Top Treks statement & the LDNPA.

Nicola, my partner in crime, has taken the plunge, jacked her job, for the thrill of a better & less conforming life! Well done Nicola. She's recently been on a Nordic Walking Instructors course & will be holding regular classes soon. Today we snuck out the back door for some Nordic Walking action to Red Tarn, Helvellyn.
Tree Top Treks are trying to push the LDNPA for a 4 wire Zip Wire running down the beautiful Glenridding Valley - Mountain Run finds this a proposterous idea and encourages anybody opposed to this idea to help the local community to stop this from happening.
The Mountaineering Council of Scotland have sent us this press release, we feel its very important that runners understand the difference between heading out on the trails during winter & heading into the mountains, so we're publishing it & we'll be backing it up with our own article about how to prepare yourself for running in the mountains during winter!
This is the 3rd & final article related to the interviews on Talk Ultra with Ian Corless about Navigation for Ultra Runners
