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

Superb event as usual. I had bit of an off-day, and clocked an almost identical time to 2 years ago, although didn't feel like I suffered quite as much!

Brilliant event, friendly organisers/participants, well catered en route. MURDER on my dodgy feet (big-toe arthritis) in fell shoes that seemed obligatory given the reported muddiness of the course. On balance, I'm not sure I couldn't have actually RUN a lot more of it in trail/road shoes with some cushioning to them, but that's down to my condition and not a criticism of the pre-race advice. I also think there's a big advantage in having done it before, so you don't have to keep stopping to faff with the course notes and map. The signage in places was unhelpful for a first-timer - in particular the "Control Point Ahead" notice on the SAME GATE as the actual control point dibber thingy and right after the most stressful ascent of the entire course! The preceding 4 checkpoints having all been manned, I was conditioned to think I was approaching a further manned point, didn't notice the dibber and went through untimed. At least they were kind enough not to DQ me for the mistake! My rubbish time leaves me with a sense of unfinished business: despite tripping and banging my head on Froggatt Edge, I'll be back. Probably need a foot operation first, though.
