Fido, not heard about Lpool- Manchester ultra, is that on here as a thread? but managed trail, probably the canal paths? Light muddy, bit of gravel, similar to Glasgow to Edinburgh I expect. There are Manchester to Yorkshire versions in April 50/75/100k.
Someone mentioned to Bernard Gommersall they were trying to do London to Brighton road race also.
Certainly not confident enough to think I would finish whilst in the pens but 30-40k in just relaxed. Really flowed and spent rest of racing smiling and laughing.
Lowrez I did see your pink Floyd top at R&R, commented to someone about it. I'm on the Wirral, it was Wallasey AC manning the water station. I've done Ellesmere port before but it's father's day. Maybe penny lane after though.
I'm very tempted to do Comrades again but not 100% yet. Got my back to back medal, still want a BR but not my entire purpose for this race... It's just a phenomenal experience. It changes you. Some targets for the winter then make a decision.
