We need help on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday (28th, 29th and 30th June) with manning checkpoints on the hill, manning roadside support points and setting out and retrieving checkpoints.

This recieved from the BBC – superstardom beckons (under 30s only)
Dear Ambleside AC,
I’m a producer working for BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat and I’m making a series of films about running; I’m writing to you in the hope that you might be able to help me get in touch with some of your members.
We’re hoping to speak to people who run for the therapeutic benefit it brings them, perhaps to help them cope with a particularly challenging period or event in their life. We’re looking for people who are really keen runners, but not necessarily in a competitive sense, and, crucially, under 30 years old.
We’ll be making a series of high-quality short films with the same theme, that we’ll be filming all over the country. I wonder if you might be able to help by putting me in touch with any of your members you think may be interested?
My email is email@example.com and I’d be happy to chat further to anyone who’d like some more info.
With very best wishes,
