In some ways the event is like a LDWA event with walkers, long cut offs and masses of food (especially at the end).

|The winners strava not mine- same til the end, just slower|
This is where, I later found out, the leading men dropped to better running. I was totally alone as I climbed steeply to Nab End quarries and the last CP. I forced a gel down, ignored the fact that two years ago I had finished by now and made a determined effort to run (albeit slowly) all the way to the finish. With just a minor altercation with a bus on a narrow lane I was back in Sowerby and soon passing the church and heading up the path to the cricket club door.

No results up yet but Nick, Bob and Dick all finished OK.

I hope to be back as I love the event, orgainsers/ volunteers and the challenge of a new route.
