The Northern Traverse is now wrapped up, with Simon Bilton dropping the hammer to come in ahead of Jon Sutcliffe, who walked in with his partner Thorlene. Peter Hall and Martin Webb sauntered in to close the event, having picked up scones at a store on the way across from the Lion Inn today.

The final leaderboard for the hill sprint reads:
Benjamin Lacrouts - 3:47
Karl Shields - 4:24
Mark Lattanzi - 4:49

And the ladies
Harriet Shields - 5:20 (7th overall)
Angela White - 6:10 (11th overall)
Karen Nash - 7:48 (14th overall)

And with that, bar packing all the kit up and everyone getting home, is the Northern Traverse 2018 concluded. Check out the galleries and our daily videos from Summit Fever Media over on Facebook. Thanks for watching!
