Thunder rolling around for a time, in cloud on the top, not a sunny summers evening

I was the checkpoint marshal on the summit of Knott for the Fellside Fell Race. 65 minutes up, got there far to early, 1 hour 15 minutes at the summit, 45 minutes back down.

Looking back down Grainsgill Beck

The water management system has seen better days

Heading up Knott, it always feels further when you can't see how far it is to go

The cloud clears and I get a view across to Great Calva

Knott summit

Looking across to High Pike as I wait for the first runners to turn up

Knott summit and the cloud is back

Looking down on Miller Moss as I head back down after all the runners and sweep team have been through my checkpoint

A detour to Lingy Hut
