Back in May, Ray Maynard completed the Joss Naylor Lakeland Challenge. This is a gruelling challenge exclusively for the over 50s which covers 48 miles, 30 tops and ascends nearly 17000ft. It starts in Pooley Bridge and ends at Greendale Bridge, Wasdale. Cut off times vary according to age and gender – at 60, Ray had 18 hours to complete and actually finished in 15:14. Go back and read his original blog again to remind yourselves what a great time that is.
At the weekend, Ray travelled to the Lakes to be presented with his tankard by the man himself. What a great photo.
