Delamerewolf Legs fine felt OK, never thought I'd be able to run all the way round but I did it - not bad considering I couldn't even run a mile without gasping for breath in February! 10 miles seemed to be at least 3 miles after the 9 mile marker... and started going slower round then but mind over matter and all that -- I kept plodding on! Very very very pleased to finish under 2 and a  half hours. Might even consider doing it again! Unaffiliated 2:15:40 2:15:40 2:15:40 48.72

A great run and smashed my PB  by 2 mins and 52 seconds. Weather was great and temperature perfect. A massive thank you to a tameside runner who paced and encouraged me for the last 7 miles!!!! Unaffiliated 1:26:29 1:30:00 1:32:00 1:30:00 67.69
