The 40 is sounding popular....Wish it had been an option last year...Going from 26 to 70 in one go is hard......

Yep, i'm doing the 70 and looking forward to it.
Is the rain going to affect any of the underfoot conditions, i'm not sure what the terrain is like?

Yes the rain did affect the underfoot conditions, there was one very muddy hill about 2 miles into the lap which was very slippery after a couple of laps. I did the 40 and really felt for the guys and gals doing the 70 and 100. Saw you at the end of your 2nd lap Ria, hope you got through it ok and are still raring to go for the half tomorrow.

It was good wasn't it! Yes, I was fine! An hour quicker than the year before, & the HM was great as the sun came out!

16 hours is FAST Cidad!! :)

I'm doing the 70 however after my PW marathon on Thursday ( more than a mile over distance due to running to the loo several times ) 1 don't think 26 hours is going to be enough for me !!!

Got something to say?
