Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

A great race very friendly and in the day light quite scenic.
disorganized
DNF. Delayed at Aylesbury & started nearly 1hr late; navigational catastrophies; retired 3M from Goring when that checkpoint closed; covered around 50M by midnight; started off on Icknield Way by mistake, visiting Bridgewater Monument 2 or 3 times and touring Ashcroft Estate quite thoroughly, enjoying the woods shaded from the hot sun; wonderfully enjoyable all the way except maybe for Grymm's Ditch which was a bit of a trial - v narrow nettled path, lots of tree roots, so necessarily slow in the dark. Moon no help when completely lost on Golf Course nr Nuffield and had to escape down steep bank onto main road and go round it.

Awesome run, great aid stations, all you need is something to drink between CP's, the food they provide you with is superb. Beautiful scenery, great camaraderie, pretty well signed (only got lost once, added maybe four miles to distance, bugger). Loved the run, but could run it better, got tendonitis in left foot from half way onwards and took shed loads of pain killers. Foot was huge when finished and didn't run for 2weeks after. Was a niggle prior to the race, should've known, but far too stubborn! Will run it again, maybe in 2011, need to get a a good sub 20hr time. Unfinished business!!!!!
