CROWDS are flocking to Rydal Park in Ambleside today for one of summer’s most popular sporting events.

With the Rydal Round fell race already underway, the sunlight poking through the clouds and the smell of the best of Cumbrian produce in the air, this year’s Ambleside Sports is gearing up to be one of the best yet.

Anticipation is building as local sports people of all ages prepare to battle it out in a variety of cycling, running and wrestling events.

For full report and pictures see The Westmorland Gazette tomorrow.
