Running Up and Falling Down

Running Up and Falling Down

By Hati Whiteley

The Alpkit Team headed up to Grasmere for the 40th Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon last weekend to run and navigate under sunny Lake District skies, whilst Events Man Talyn and Store Hero Amanda brought the Alpkit Teepee, pop up shop and their enthusiasm to support the participants.

As always, the atmosphere at Saunders was social, supportive, enthusiastic, and encouraging. We'd like to say a huge thank you to the event organisers and volunteers who made it happen, and a congratulations to the participants for getting out on the hill despite the blistering heat! Here's how the Alpkit team got on...
