Last recce will be either at the w/e or on Monday. On race day I'm planning 19 peaks out of the 22 in the central and western Beacons area over 2000'. Surprisingly it only involves another 4 miles and 130' ascent on top of the event's so-called 10 peaks (actually 13 on the course).
Will abandon this own challenge if the weather is poor.
I'll remember to stay with that fence a bit longer, sean.
Excellent blog and photos, though, Richyla. Your experience sounds amazingly similar to at least three of my R85s! Glad you could keep going. In 2012 I was going even more slowly and eventually had to stop at the beginning of the badly rutted section with only 2 miles to go.
Sounds like you went off very quickly, perhaps too quickly? Even on my 21hr completion it was dark well before Goring.
