Military bergan racing..for fun
Not a race report per se but a quick note about this year's Ex Endurance, which was:
26.8miles navigational event in the Brecon Beacons
10,600ft ascent and similar descent, carrying a 40lb+ backpack.
Weather was perfect, bright but cool which resulted in some fantastic racing. Massive respect to this year's winner, Josh who smashed it in 11hrs 03 minutes (despite stopping for 17minutes at RV3 for fuel). Everyone finished in under 13hrs this year which meant an early night for the marshalls who do a great job and generally spend about 20hrs at their station.
Thanks to all the contestants, my fantastic marshalling team, and to the National Trust who grant us permission to hold the event! See you next year and hopefully before then at the Sleepwalker night race in November
