Hope you enjoyed your day out in hills around Keswick. - Just some special thanks to Cyclewise who helped us organise the riding around Whinlatter. They have a feature in the latest Adventure Sports Magazine on their MTB courses for Adventure Racers, next course is in November well worth penning in the diary.

Also the guys from Keswick Mountain Adventures who provided the safety cover for the Swim and Stoneycroft Ghyll. If you ever want to take the friends and family kayaking, climbing or for a dip in a ghyll give these guys a shout - they are great fun.

Thanks should go to the National Trust who were tremendously helpful in putting this event together - it was a privilege to be able to come here. Its difficult to comprehend what a massive task they have in managing such a popular location as Cat Bells.

Cheryl Frost from Keswick Mountain Festival was the lady who came up with this idea and asked us to come along. Helped us immensely in the weeks before the event both with promotion and with the site at Rawnsley Hall. If you recognise the name - its because Cheryl, regularly competes in Adventure Races and MTB events - (and does pretty well), nothing better than having a festival organiser who knows what you need before you ask.

Finally to all the people who helped in marshalling the event - Rounsley Family, Charlotte Hattersley, Andy Sallabank, Ian Nicol, Fi Spotswood, Judith Hughes, Alice Hamblin, Ally Love, John and Louise Allen, Dave Morrow, Peter Stephens, Paul and Rachel Stanbrook, Gill Watson, Paula, Liam and to Sam and team from New Balance. I'd also like to thank Peter Rostron from Mountain Hardwear who visited Keswick during the week and kindly put a few of the MTB controls out.

Race report and photos from Sleepmonsters will be up in the next couple of days. As ever any feedback most welcome - I got the feeling the Nevertear maps didn't work out as the print rubbed off (for those reading this who didn't compete, competitors also had a laminated copy of the map). More headscratching needed before we head over to waterproof paper I think.

No worries
