Had a great day and our club came top in both the mens and womens races - not alas with me scoring :-)

Big PB though, and a suntan, plus an education in modern agricultural techniques and machinery. Bar the mile markers which were all over the place it was a brilliantly organised event, marshalls and water stations especially

Congrats on the peebee Uyuni star. I agree with the mile markers - and sometimes they got the half and the full the wrong way round! But I was grateful that the muck spreader had a tea break until everyone had gone past!

Decided the mile markers were the nearest telegraph post to it, which could mean quite a difference. Countryside living for you!

I enjoyed the half.

Queue for loos was annoying at the start and if anyone else needed paper in the one I used. Sorry I took the last bit.

Apart from that a good day out. Shame I couldn't have done the full but hitting the half way mark at my house would have seen me walking in and putting feet up.

Thought the t shirt was average and would have appreciated a piece of fruit or something at the finish for the money.

But nit picking here really as I did enjoy it and thought it was well marshalled etc.

Got something to say?
