Ditto to all the comments .... Hardest, craziest, most bonkers, most satisfying to finish, most steps, least flat race I've ever done. And the singing of "God save the Queen" halfway up a hill was quite surreal. As were the submerged stepping stones. Almost felt like something out of Alice in Wonderland !
The support and comeradie among all the runners - full and half - was great. And I hope I thnked all the marshals at some point on the way round - cos they were legendary.
Helly D - good to see you again - hope u will be doing it next time. The sound of the cheering from that water point at the bottom of the hill (before the steps of doom) echoed for miles
Was aiming for sub-6, and very pleased to do 5:13, as my legs wouldn't have carried on for much longer.
Great running shirt, very good medal and I love the mug !!!! Really cannot fault anything.
