NAV4 Lakes in A Day Recce - Caldbeck to Threlkeld

Once again, Joe Faulkner and his NAV4 team will be hosting these recce days on behalf of Durty Events.  This is your chance to recce a section of the route in the company of other LiAD participants and with experienced NAV4 tutors / LiAD guides, with transport provided.

NAV4 have a long association with the event having hosted the recces for many years and provide mountain safety cover during the event itself.  We know the event inside out, taken part ourselves, and know what works and what mistakes people make. 

This recce covers the first section of the event, from the start at Caldbeck to Threlkeld, including the fording of the River Caldew, the ascent of Blencathra and the descent of Hallsfell Ridge.  After a couple of miles of lane and trail, the majority of the terrain is remote open rough fell, with small grassy wet 'trods', rocky sections and, of course, the infamous Hallsfell descent.

Total distance is just 12 miles but also 3600' of ascent and descent, so it's slow going on a tough section.

The day will include lots of information about the event, suitable clothing gear and shoe choices, what to eat and drink, navigation and route advice, event strategy and training methods. 

Transport is provided before each recce from the finish point to the start. Transport will leave Threlkeld at 8:15am, with the recce starting around 9am.  Exact meeting places and other details to be confirmed in your 'Final Info' email sent the week before.  

Places limited to 15 people.
