An uneventful run across the A66 saw us arriving at Old Scales hill with enough time to sign on, grab a cuppa & a sarnie before heading up the hill before the nine o clock opening.
With no lunch break we munched and drank on the hill which was better than having a dead period in the middle of the day.
We had a great day, and so did the contestants we spoke to. It wasn't as wet and cold as it could have been which was a bonus.
The other bonus of marshalling at these events is the chance to drive on roads that are normally closed to the public
Weary, we took the essentials out of the boot and left the muddy gear for a Sunday morning clean up.
