Brilliant event. Weather turned out fine for running in the end. Thanks to all the people who helped in so many roles, there seemed to be nearly as many as running. I paced myself perfectly to finish feeling really strong, so chuffed with the day. Looking forward to next year already!

An absolutely fantastic event.  I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I did.  Incredibly well organised, brilliantly marshalled, and amazingly friendly.  There were times I forgot I was in the middle of a 32 mile race.

Those hills were tough though.  Even the 'smaller' hills towards the end felt like mountains.

An awesome event. Will hopefully be back next year if possible.

I missed this thread in the run up but thought I'd hop on to add my twopenneth about how awesome this race is. Where do you start with the superlatives??? I thought TT had it organised perfectly and the course is brilliant, tough but great to run. By the end I was hating the flat & craving more hills!

Has anybody done both the DD and Comrades? I just wondered about comparative times.

I have a clubmate who has run both. 3:53 at Dartmoor 3 years ago. 8:01 at Comrades this year.

Is this all road then?  So good training for Commrades?

Spen... perfect for Comrades although 20 odd miles shorter! Unfortunately it is on at a very similar time (normally within a week of comrades) so not so much if you intend to do comrades in 2013. You could potentially get comrades weather too, but you are just as likely to get a lot of rain! I am most likely going back in 2013 to DD for one more crack. It is a great race, well worth doing.

Ah.   Would be a good pointer if the old legs can handle the distance on road.

Anyone heard anything about the video of the race that was being produced?

Not heard anything. Would love to see it and get hold of a copy. Would be great for motivation over the winter in particular.

I am looking forward to seeing it. I did only see the camera guys once though, they were in the boot of a car filming from the bottom of the climb out of Ashburton until about 3/4 of the way up. They could have picked any of the other 30 available miles to film me!
