Aww really sorry to hear that Mr F that's bad luck, hope you're ok now and well done getting that far. That was a hard checkpoint to leave I found, with the amazing fire and the chairs around it and everything ... You'll just have to do it next year won't you? No I was alone and I think we ran together early-ish and compared notes about how dreadful the Thunder Run race was - but that could have been someone else, it is a bit of a blur to me too, I ran briefly with a few people and am still a bit sleep deprived.
Yes going up and down stairs hurts a bit Loved it, did it in 24 having left at 10am (but not sub-24 so got the finisher medal ... ). Really great race, organisation, checkpoints, everything - apart from the weather Didn't like the veerrrry heavy showers and then a veerrry long shower until 9pm much, but other than that, a really great event
I must have run with Mr F for a while on Saturday, at least didn't talk to anyone else who broke their ankle at 40 miles in 2009 anyway, how did you get on Mr F? And Andrew Smith - I think we chatted too before the half way checkpoint, although a few people were suffering with hamstrong probs - how did you go?
I am entered for this but am running out of time to check out the route before the race which is a bit of a worry. The organisers tell me that the newsletter with the route has already been sent out to everyone ... I haven't got it myself - anyone else have the route details yet?
