A tough race but trotted the flats, dug deep on the ascents and went for it on the downs. Richard ran this one with me & in suggesting on the last climb that I could do this in sub 3 hours depending on "if i really wanted it" ...sod, it was like red rag, and on trashed legs I gave it all I had and came in at a very respectable time given my goal was 3.15!!!
Acsent 5000ft (advertised as 4500, but Garmin confirms the extra 500...so i'm told)
last minute decision to enter having read good things on a forum about the race. not disappointed, good race in area i've not been to before. sort of lake district lite in terms of terrain. nothing very steep, rocky, or long, but ups and downs all the way. should have paid more attention to forum advice regarding last 3 hills, was running near the top 20 until i hit them. blew up on the climbs and had a reasonably major fall on one of the decents. need more hill training.
