The denim shorts were out on day 10, not sure about days 1-4 as we weren't there, it's a quality look though

From the look of them on Sunday, i think they need replacing

Schmunks - they've needed replacing for a good few seasons.......

They'd never be described as compression that's for sure

Some totally amazing performances, totally epic stories & totally blown away by TCs  marathon time on day 10 of the Deca. I couldn't do that as a standalone run!

Cheers folks. No the denim lycra only came out on Day10! Cheeky Pink Sally had secretly sown on pink tassles, so that was a friendly shock in T2!

To be clear, I dont know why the results have my final marathon time down as 3h23. It is exactly 2 hrs short, and is 5h23. However, in the context of it being Day10, p1ssing down, muddy, and I was running downhill in a straight-legged style to nurse a potential hamstring injury, then I was still bombing around the course, frankly taking risks I didnt need to. Although I was keen to finish before darkness, given how treacherous it was getting. But it was such a buzz, and a fitting end to a wonderful 10 days for me.

Thanks again for all the lovely pirate support. Just sorry that Mon and Symes didnt make it to the last wet day too

And in case any one is in any doubt, the real superstars of the event were Big Ted Page, Carl Atkinson, and my proud buddy Dave Miles.

TC you are a noble winner!! For others info it was TC that on my last lap of the course even though he was 10 days in and nearing the end that gave me the biggest cheer and congratulations as I passed him in the opposite direction. Thanks!

All the Decas were great . I got to speak to Big Ted, Chris and Carl a few times on the day and I couldn't believe the spirits they were in, truly inspiring.

cheers m8, just spreading the EnduroMan love. 

I was particularly in awe of the 4 Triplers, and any brave fool doing the 100 mile run! Seriously stupid on this course

one of them was saying that they thought the 100 miler was tougher than the triple...........I can't see that myself at all........the triples have to run 79 miles at the end.............who would think that the extra 21 miles is harder than 350 miles on the bike and a 7.8 mile swim...............i would take the hundred miler anytime over the triple
