Atrocious wet and cold conditions for the last 19 miles, but still the best race going. Organization and care for the runners is unbeatable - back next year
Hoping to do sub 5.30
First Ultra - Finnished in 36th place ran to my race plan,strong at the end overtook 10 people from 26 miles- should have done 445 but was too scared of the distance.Best sporting experience of my life- Proud to have been in the same race as those runners
Ran this last year, loved it. It's a soft PB so should be able to take a decent chunk off. *Update* Wow, incredibly tough in torrential rain and being absolutely frozen in 5 degrees. No problems with leg endurance or the hills so found it easier to slog through without stopping, even at the water stations. I was wet enough on the outside, didn't need to get any wetter on the inside! Brilliant brilliant race, already looking forward to going back next year.
is sub-5 too much to hope for? UPDATE: yes, too much to hope for. It wasn't to be. 45 seconds slower than last year.
Fantastic race - beautiful route, tough going!!
