Interesting reads as always. I twisted my ankle with a dreaded cracking noise on Torside coming off Bleaklow. Pushed on using poles to reach checkpoint 1 but 4 hours behind my plan, rested and found a very swollen ankle in the morning.
I calculated I would take around 65+ hours min to now reach the end at my current pace and pulled out on that theory (as well as common sense and needing to ensure I could return to work), not easy choice.
Loved the race, hated doing parts of it but that's what makes it for me.
Already eager to do it again. Interested in finding out where people Bivvy down, didn't look very appealing. Tractor sounds a great idea.
Appreciate must be frustrating but what time/location did they make the decision to pull you Cragchick?
