Heard that this morning. Absolutely amazing ! He won't be doing High Peak Marathon next year then.
Marshalling was great fun on sat. Always enjoy it on HP40 if not running in it. Was at Beet Farm, which used to be an old barn, but has now been converted into the most amazing house. Good to see BritNick there, also saw your friend Mark I think, who we saw when we did Hardmoors 60 last year. Quite a few others i knew too, so was good.
I've done the High Peak Marathon twice Danny. This year and 2 or 3 years ago. Really great event, possibly my favourite race. Biggest problem is getting a place. Ballot to decide places other than those reserved for previous winners inc age category winners. Needs lots of reccying if not done it before as lots of it are through featureless boggy moorland. Some of the bogs literally can have you submerged to your neck. Great feeling of achievement when you finish it, and all the winter training sets you well up for the rest of the year. Helps to have a top notch navigator in your team. This year was so murky that loads of people who had done it many times before still went wrong over Bleaklow.
