HI Jules  and all the blue start 5:14 group

 sorry I missed you at the end... I was about 48 seconds behind you and just couldn't sprint that last mile to keep up with you

Well done to Sue, Monica  and all the group for helping get me me around and a HUGE thanks to Jules the Ruinners World Pace setter you were AMAZING

best wishes

YES Chippers! So glad to hear you made it across OK, I spent the last 800 metres falling over myself looking backwards for you. We crossed in 5:13:45 so 15 seconds too fast, but I think that is acceptable. Lovely to have met you all, great day out!

Top pacing jules. How the hell you did it carrying that bloody leaden lollipop is beyond me. I really don't think they could have made it heavier if theyd tried !!

Haha! Let's just say my wrists and neck were a bit stiff this morning...But well worth it, had a great group!

Thanks so much. I followed the group pretty much all of the way. I'm not sure I could have kept track of the pace myself and am hugely grateful for your help. I still can't believe how big the sign was and that you carried it all the way around!

Hi there Seren,

I think it was, it was a great finish. Very emotional. Thanks for your help at the end and the chat, it took my mind off of a lot of aches! It was such an amazing day, I'll never forget it!
