well done everybody who completed 50 and 100, hats off to anybody in the weather who did the 100. I was running second in 100 after 50 miles, but weather got to me and had the worst head torch which shone at best 2 foot in front and spent my time slipping and a sliding! so quit at 55

Well done to all who finished at the weekend.

Gave it a good try but Henk stopped me and my mate from carrying on with just 2 hours and 10 minutes left as we wouldn't be able to finish the lap.

Got 80 miles done and ran the last lap quicker than the previous 2.

Will be back again next year.

Dave

I'll see you next year, and the year after until I get the 100

I saw Dave the Irishman - looked out on his feet at around 12.30pm. We also ran together at around 6 pm as he didn`t take his torch.

Hope everyone`s recovery is coming along well.

I`ll be back next year

Mr K

 

Nice report

Word of advice - Henk does not like his course details put up on the internet (ie Garmin routes etc) as it spoils the surprise, especially for the 30 milers who only get to see it in the dark

Hey Mr. K.  Here's my carbon copy of your report.

 Good meeting you if only briefly and in a bit of a bad place, just at the end.

Matt nice report and cheers for the link... well done on your run. I must have seen you near the end of your 4th lap?! I was in the white/blue vest with black arm warmers on.

I think you were going too fast for me to see you.    Amazing run and you got it mostly done in daylight and all in the dry.

Hello Matt, I wondered who those carrots were for  I ate & drunk very little really - 330ml flat coke, 3 cups of orange, 2 gels, 1 Muller Rice, 3 coffees, a couple of sweets & a jelly.

veggieboy - Thanks for tip of - I`ll click private on the Garmin settings later. (Sorry Henk)

Though intending to do the 100, after the 50 with issues with right knee decided to call it a day, does anybody know how long Henk takes to update website with results? As keen to see where my time of 9 hours 30 mins would have placed me.

I ate 30 shot bloks and drank about 2 litres of water with elete electrolyte in. Oh and a coke at the midway checkpoint on the last lap I think.

It started raining shortly after I finished Matt. The course was already bad for the last 2 - 3 laps out the back of the course but the rain must have made it even worse.

WIB - your work rate was a lot higher than mine esp when you flew past me. I need to try out those shot blocks.

Mark - as long as he wants...brave or silly person to ask him directly.

24/10/2012 at 18:37
Thought it was better not to ask him direct!

Mr K - I think they are good. I can stomach them a lot better than gels. Well, the gels I have tried anyway. The only problem is you have to take about 3 of them to make the equivelent of a gel so I was taking about 6 a lap.

Great report Mr k .. Does anyone know how long it took for the results to come out last year .. I finished the 100 and there were still a couple out there just wanted to know if they made it in , too scared still to ask Henk . Was a awesome event , the hardest 100 I have ever done and am extremmly proud to have finished it .

I was thinking of the 100 Daz... I know I can run a faster 50 so not sure which to go for.
