LBM Toughest race I've ever done bar none! I know it was made harder due to the revised course due to flooding.

Fanstastic scenery and jaw dropping ascents and descents. A tremendous event, brilliantly organised by Dick Kearn. 

I suffered on the second lap due to overheating. I wore UA given it was freezing when we started, but come the second lap I struggled to stay hydrated. Nevertheless, a positive result despite me losing about 5 mins due to a navigational mess up. Norfolk Gazelles Running Club, Trail Running Association 6:20:27 6:20:27 6:20:27 57.51
Running Fish one of the more stupid things i've done. still unable to shake off the long running hamstring injury which tightens after about 5 miles, but experimenting last saturday found i could run through it by forefoot striking. so tried out a pair of zero drop innov8 on monday which worked ok but trashed the calves. rested until race day, but calves started complaining before we'd left the sports field. needless to say the rest wasnt very pretty. cant walk now.
