GM, I seem to be a less-active version of you. Do you really run like that?

Dr Rob is too accommodating for my health ... see you on Saturday. I shall be standing shoulder to shoulder with you at the start, and hopefully crawling buttock to buttock with you at the finish, as it were.

I've done the Knacker Cracker and the Midsummer Munro. Any suggestions that I might be sane can now be dismissed. I'll be at the start line on Saturday afternoon. Th finish line? We'll just have to wait and see. It seemed like such a good idea at the time...

Coming down with a sore throat and a slight pull in the Gluteus maximus so not looking too good at the moment for Saturday.

Thats some pain in the arse , looking forward to Saturday now. I know I shouldn't be considering what we have to do but it's nice to explain to people that ask just how difficult this is compared to 26 miles on flat tarmac. Best of luck to all full and half runners

Good shout Adrian - all the best to everybody gutsy enough and ballsy enough to stand on the start line tomorrow....look forward to seeing you all at the finish line when night has fallen!!

Tomorrow should mark my 6th consecutive participation to the Munro. I have ALWAYS looked at the Picnic runners with awe and admiration, and slightly envious. BUT I know my I'll run past you with a smile and words of encouragment. Good luck to you all Picnic Runners, and respect!!!! Enjoy!...Gulp!

Yes and I really am that slim too. Say hello to me -  it looks like we are made for each other.

Looking forward to tomorrow.  Looks like a great weather forecast for a picnic

Guys, Box hill has had an awful lot of rain in the last few hours it should make things very interesting tomorrow.

Good luck everyone, come what may...!

Just want to say a big thanks to;
Dr. Rob for putting on the whole event
All the marshals with a special mention to the girls running the water station by the first road crossing and the guy at juniper bottom.
And finally all the runners. We're a friendly lot aren't we!!

Definitely one of the best races...ever

very well done to allthe brave runners took part in the picnic today. Sorry to any runners if we got in your way as I made my way down the steps  with my two boys. Iwas wearing the England rugby shirt.

Wow that was tough.

A very big thanks to Dr Rob and all the marshalls for making this awesome event possible.

A wonderful days running, many thanks Dr.Rob and team. Congratulations to all finishers, full, half and cut-off casualties especially - we were all winners.

Thanks to marshalls and particularly Dr Rob for not short changing Garmin confirmed the promised 30 miles! A truly awesome route. Now that you've discovered a further method of torture will you continue offering Ultra routes in the future? There seem to be plent of us nutters keen to sign up for whatever Trionium can devise!

On a serious note....heard that the zig zags were closed because a runner was hot by a car? Hope all involved are OK.

jon what was the total ascent and descent on your Garmin? As mine was 11675 and 11784 a lot more than Dr Robs 7000.
24/06/2012 at 10:19

Well done to everyone who finished this. 

<span style="color: #000000; font-size: 12px;">My garmin says 29.60miles, and 6,993ft elevation gain, 6,980ft for loss so dr rob was spot on.

<span style="color: #000000; font-size: 12px;">Thanks to the RD, and all volunteers.

Thanks Dr Rob and all the marshalls, I had a bit of a mare but that was mainly down to me.
Absolutely hated it from about 2/3M in , my legs felt heavy and unresponsive. Will I be back again , well probably
