100 mile point to point run from Richmond to Oxford
good luck everyone.... keep warm!
Good luck all - look forward to your race reports
Couldn't get anywhere near the race HQ for MCN event in Cwmdu. No-one seemingly could from any direction. As Lirish said shortened to a "safe" 39K route in any case. Only the happy campers who got there last night would have any chance of running.
Hope you lot are all doing OK.
Somehow these events seem worse in terms of time scale, when you are watching them as an external observer.
You wake up on Sunday morning and people are still going, and that is when you think "sh1t did I really do this race last year".
Indeed.....it is very strange to be sitting on the sidelines watching, when I had trained myself up ready to do this. Its like having a ticket to a really good party, getting yourself all dressed up, then having it snatched away from you.
Gutted as I am to not be there taking part, I strongly suspect I would have spent the night in the car stuck on the motorway like those poor sods in Dumfries and Galloway and down in the Lake District. And that would have been even more frustrating! The weather is unreal up here for this time of year.....although we sometimes get snow this late it doesnt often cover such a wide area - ie you can actually get out of Scotland!
One good piece of news today was my accommodation have offered to refund a portion of my money as I couldnt go, so that cuts back the financial loss .
Did a good 11.4m uphill in 10-15cm of snow today, not quite the 100 I had in mind, but the safer option.
Hope everyone is getting on okay and all you marshalls and volunteers are keeping warm too out at the CP's. Stay safe through the night you lot.
I can't see any updates on that link?
Me too, can't see anything remotely suggesting updated results on the fly.
GeeeM - you did well to get there. 4wd? Liked the report a lot - well-written. You made a difficult day out sound amusing. The leader must have found it difficult breaking trail for everyone else.
Any news from anybody on the TP? Hopefully not too much snow to contend with at least.
