This event is listed on these dates:

Lady Sol
DNF - Pulled out at mile 30.
emmilou
Bloody long way!! got lost after the final checkpoint so all in it was 52 miles and 8125ft of climbing
giggsy
Very cold, very wet and very windy. enjoyed every minute. Could have done without an extra 2 miles of wrong turns though....need to brush up on my navigation!
Leeboy
Severely bad cramps (again) hindered me at halfway then thereafter until finish. Will try different preperations in future.
Rhino
Very wet, windy and muddy but Totally Fab. Probably almost the most fun I've ever had racing so far. Felt really strong all the way and definitely could've kept going (but maybe not for another 45 miles!).
ps-66
Time at 50ml as ran 54.2.
Official race result 8:48:42
Would have gone under 8 if i wasn't so wet and cold just had to stop at half way point for several cups of tea and warm the fingers. Some fifteen minutes later off i went that's tough getting going again. This is possibly the longest pit stop to date.
Matt the Brum
1st/208 finishers in 6:17:54, just 4 seconds outside course record. Very wet, cold and windy day making the plooughed fields quuite hard work. Pleased with run finishing just over an hour ahead of 2nd place. Great event that I'd definately do again.
Too Much Water
With Rhino. In many ways one of my best races this year considering the lack of training in the 6 months preceding. Some mental strength after all. Done off only 5 hours sleep and after a difficult drive up the day before. Kept the pace very steady which helped in the last 15 miles, lots of walk breaks, perhaps too many over the muddy fields. Weather was very bad, it rained on and off most of the day and got quite cold around lunchtime.
Ex-pat Scot
That was hard! OK to half way but suffered like a dog on the second half. Weather brutal and legs refusing to work. Total clocked was 52.5 miles due to route detour.
