This was always going to be a bit of a struggle after yesterdays 20 miler. Plodded round at the back & tried to finish strongly once all the hills had finished. Course was quite benign today and had dried out a lot since Rough'n'tumble. Nice to meet James & Konaboy at the start.
I found this hard work, my legs felt dead from the start after 2 interval sessions. The course was fantastic, fairly flat for the first 5 miles and then a long steady climb that really burned my calves. A vertical hill soon followed and then a couple more before the end. I was extremely pleased to see the finish line as my thighs were starting to cramp up with half a mile to go. All in all, it acted well as a long training run on tired non receptive legs. Would love to do it next year on fresh legs and without big blisters on my toes.

Loved it ! Hard work but quality organisation made for a great day.
Much drier than last year made for faster times although the hills don't get any less steep!!! 1st half undulating including stream crossing, K&A towpath & wooded bridleway followed by the 2nd including 4 climbs up (& down) the Pewsey Vale escarpement & a river crossing. Hot showers, a massive cake selection & refreshments at the end topped a great morning out. Will try the Rough & Tumble next year for comparison.
Very nice race - I think we got off quite lightly with the lack of mud, but the hills are still the same height!
Ran well at a good pace which felt comfortable. Ran with C davey most of the way, but felt good going up the final climb so pushed on.
Finished 5th TeamBath and 16th overall, helping to secure the team prize for Bath - £50 each prize is a nice little earner and made the day all the more worthwhile
