Number noted. I'll text you when I'm on my way to Buxton tomorrow. It's nearly an hour between train arrival and bus departure.

The broker, I was planning walk-running, though since fitness has deserted me of late, the running will be more like jogging.

I intend to reconnoitre the last 22 miles of the Bullock Smithy from Earl Sterndale on Saturday - early train to Buxton + bus to ES to be on my way by 9am. Anyone caring to join me would be welcome. I don't go fast.

'Used to', Minnie Six? You didn't throw such rare and cherished items away, did you?

Daz it's got to be Glossopdale for LToB, since it's in their race series. (BTW it's 34 miles with The Escalator still being out of bounds.)

I didn't know anything about the new SW100 but mention of it here did pique my interest. I'd better go and Google it to see what it's all about.

I just glimpsed in the latest TRA magazine this morning about Javed doing two laps of the Thames Ring 250. I don't know how that's humanly possible. I couldn't even do one ring.

Is that where you get brown wee, T Rex? I'm lucky as that's never happened to me in an Ultra.

Well done all L50/100 completers. It never gets any easier. It was my 5th L100 so I'm the proud owner of the new exclusive 500 mile award. Big surprise was that.

Thanks for the shout, Daz. I did have a good L100 until the last 15 miles or so. When I compared splits afterwards I discovered that I was up to 49 mins ahead of my PB of 2013, then the wheels really fell off by Chapel Stile and I finished nearly 2 hours behind. It was good to see the Blistas on the climb of Fusedale. (First L50 runners raced in to Howtown while I sat and refuelled.) The 500 mile award was a pleasant surprise too.

See you at Long Tour of Bradwell. We won't have to do the escalator again this year.

I'm doing it again this year after a few years' break. I always really enjoy it and the weather's always been kind when I've been there.
