It has been many things over the years - leg 3 clockwise, leg 3 anticlockwise, leg 2 and this year a shortened version. The standard these days is a clockwise route starting and finishing in Patterdale.
ultra bad-weather route this year. Friday's plans were to run the race as per the last few years, but with Leg 4 staying low (for the marshals anyway!) to the L3 pile of stones then to Grisedale tarn outflow - that would have been an interesting descent in the clag!
