Actually entered for the 18 mile option but don't want a list all by myself :-) UPDATE - yes, I swapped to the marathon on the day! It hurt more than South Downs but was still great fun ;-)
ran most of the 2nd 1/2 with Binks, quite pleased with the improvement from 2 years before.
Garmin time recorded.
Run time off garmin
I ran with Mel & Allan from Collingwood after splitting from Dave Ross who went the wrong way at about 8 miles, I managed to fall & Mel did twice, the second time her knee & calf really swelled but she just kept on going. another personal worst but another marathon closer to 100. the best news of the day was being invited to run the centenary marathon on Thursday by the 100 marathon club.
I hope to be a little quicker this year after taking a wrong turn near the finish last year.

Not quite sure where the finish was, so this is approximate time

very tough race
