thank you Lee! Round and round and round and round was good and bad I guess - loads of chances to see people, and no risk of getting lost, running out of food, etc - but not such nice views as something like the North or South Downs Way.
Tigerspaw - saw your note about end of JCC - was that in 2010? And were you one of the final bunch who made it to the finish within the cut-off (people behind had to wait for an hour before being allowed to continue because of the fog)? If so, I wonder if I was one of the slightly dazed people you bumped into - ended up dropping down onto the beach a bit early and wading round some rocks! If so, sorry if I was a bit grumpy - was at the end of the Oner and was a bit tired of running (well, mostly walking for me) at that point.
