So I obtained the following elevation profiles for the C2C2C challenge Aidy and I are doing. How hard does day 2 look (the middle section)? Scaling what looks like around 800 feet in around 3 miles?
Elevation Profile – St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay – 3 Day Cycle
Below is the elevation profile of the 5 day run back to St Bees – the route was automatically created by Google as the quickest route back by foot. Me and Aidy will have to get together and work out the best route which will be a fine line between total distance vs scenery. The last thing we want is to run down roads…….

……but we could always do the official 13 day walk Wainrights route in 5 days…. Look at those elevations on days 1 and 2 (actually crying inside).

I also pieced together the OS map snippets I found online on an amateur website from someone who completed it as a walk. I have overlayed this over a Google map to hopefully make better sense… but appreciate it’s a bit messy.
