The Fellsman is upon us and I have my new Mountain King Trail Blaze poles to test!

OK so I have had a quiet week or so, tapering ready for the weekend – The Fellsman 2015 kicks off at 0830hrs Saturday morning 25th April.

Its 61 miles over the Dales with 10 000 ft ascent and plenty of bog and fells to cross with navigation, plenty of rain forecast and did I mention it has lots of bog!!

I shall be doing this with my mates Duncan and Dave so it should be a fine adventure…

I must say thanks very much to Mountain King for the ultralight ┬áTrail Blaze ‘z’ poles they have sent me to try out, they will certainly get a good testing…

These poles look amazing – they weigh 125g, are easy to pop together with a small cord running down the centre of them that locks into the top of the handle with a tiny knot (pull the cord hard and the knot appears, whence it is slotted into the groove on the handle top – very simple and very effective…. Expect a full review after the event

My Hoka OneOnes will be tested on this event too and again a full review to follow…. I ran the Moelwyns race last weekend and found them great again….
