I am not familiar with the part of Stinger course near Washington but a buddy of mine said it can get very muddy round that part. That is the only part of the route I just don't know but the rest won't be so much muddy as just slippy with the clay underfoot. I was up there a few weeks ago and the farmer had been out in his tractor and just lifted up the top layer of clay and it was just everywhere !! My trail shoes were like diving boots at the end.
I can't imagine anything will be quite like Doyen which was knackering but I loved....oh except the freshly ploughed field going into Amberley....another farmer to thank.
Maybe I am just living in hope !!
