Ah ok, sorry about my misquote above, the first one came from a different thread but was obviously stored in my quotes

Just got back from it. It was hard and slow. very steep and slippery. My Garmen said 10.6 miles. Did anyone else find it short. Not that im complaining. Id had enough by te end

My Garmin said 11.32....I loved every minute of it!! bring on the Full Marathon in September

Do you think maybe the Garmin has trouble with elevation, i know i did.

I think Ill give the full marathon a miss. I didnt enjoy it. Just couldent get a pace going.

Good luck to you though

Thank you Getting a pace going was an issue yes, however surely people didnt enter this race thinking it was going to be easy/flat/not muddy? It was all about endurance today, and a test of mental strength definitely. There was one quite precarious bit of very muddy pathway towards the end of the lap and I did nearly fall down the bank which would have been a bad accident....but I didn't, so all is good

I entered expecting maybe steep rocky ascents and trail-running conditions. They didn't try to sell it as a cross-country or fell race, after all. If they'd used something like the "mudrunner oblivion" marketing, we might have been a bit more prepared!

.To be honest I entered months ago. Thought Cheddar is nice Ill do that. Don't recall anywhere reading it was all cross country. Still very satisfying finishing. Felt it was one medal well earned. Still not convinced about the distance.

Anyone know where, when resaults are published ?

Just out of interest, do you know the winning women's time and who it was?

1:48.13 by a "Cath Stibbs" apparently - results are up.

They're doing another Cheddar one on September the 9th, unfortunately on the same day as Woodchester Park, a local favourite.
There's also the Forest of Dean 'Autumn' half, on September the 30th - New event and on the same day as Bristol, but done by the same people who organise the 'Spring Trails' half which was a cracker earlier on this year.
