So almost a year on and what's been occuring?  Well I entered the LDWA Red Rose 100 miler.  In the run up there was the Hebden, the Anglezarke Amble, Peelers Hike, Two Crosses Circuit, Calderdale Hike (sadly chopped), the Fellsman and then the main event itself. In amongst that were plenty of recces of more or less the whole route. Here's the last 12 months or so in picures
