Bacon butties and applause at CP7 were fantastic. The fog was a real challenge; we've run the paths hundreds of times and still nearly missed the last gate onto the tarmac road back to Rottingdean.
A great event from start to finish; route, marshalls, food and fellow Striders all first class. One of the highlights for me was dropping out of the cloud coming off Itford hill and charging down towards Southease station; the Ouse valley looked brilliant and we new it wasn't to far to go...I had a smile on face all the way down.
If anyone from the event is reading this, a massive thank you to all involved in putting this on; you're all stars.
If you don't want a race but do want the miles, you could try the LDWA's Sussex Stride (late Sept); 50 miles circular over the South Downs, starts in Rottingdean and finishes with a full english fry up.
