Was there any steeplechase?

I have entered two tunnels in mid August and written up a beautiful training plan :-)

I like doing that bit. It's like revision timetables :-)

Yes I almost got the highlighter out :-)

Just the one marathon AL through two old railway tunnels in Bath. Not to be confused with two bridges the week after which will be much more exposed (severn bridges). I reckon I will be doing a few 20 milers in training but all in parts (including endure24 where I think I'll be doing 4 or 5 laps of five)

That's crying out surely for a two bridges/ two tunnels ultra :-) (Maybe there is one already?) Or a race which went through the two tunnels twice? It could be called the Four Candles.

Got something to say?
