Totally agree garth, great event with very supportive marshalls. Nice to have a quick chat before the race and to see Mc hilly again. Saw a few other C hats knocking around and did speak to a few people during the race which was nice.
Shame the weather was a bit rubbish, but hopefully trail running is harder than road since during the end yesterday, i couldn't imagine running almost a minute quicker and 16 miles further. And yes, didn't like it through those woods, it was a bit tricky on the second lap so walked though those sections.
Overall, very happy that i ran the 40, haven't run one for a few years and felt ok (ish) at the end. Was slightly apprehensive at the start but eating every 3 miles certainly breaks the race into easier chunks.
See you next Sunday at Worcester Garth.
