Duddon, English champs long. Hot day for it, so aimed to start cautiously and finish strongly, which sort of worked. Felt pretty comfortable on the long run out to Harter Fell, but the pace really picked up on the descent, so I tried to hang back a bit. Hardknot went quickly, but got a bit of a duff line off, so had to work harder up Little Stand. I had been drinking a nice lot, but had completely forgotten about eating, so shovelled quite a bit of food in here. Got passed by a group of 7? Ambleside, Keswick and Calder on the traverse, but decided to let them go to provide some targets to stalk on the way up Swirl. That worked well and I had clawed my way back to the front of the group by the top. Hung onto Tom Watt and Ben Sharrock on the long fast balcon over to Dow and White Maiden, feeling really good and reeling in a couple more places. Then hit Caw and realised that I was pretty much spent. Just about held some sort of pace to the summit, but my legs were jelly for the descent and I got passed and gapped by Tom. Luckily no one else was within touching distance, so hung on for 12th. Fairly happy with that, but 9 minutes down on my time from 2015, when I was 13th. Hotter today I guess?
