Great race and nice and low key, I’ve started this twice, first time Dnf, then a few weeks after CCC feeling ok tried it again. Came under my target of 24 hours with fellow runners keeping me going through the night which feels a lot tougher than in other 100 mile races as it comes round so soon due to the midday start time. All in all a brilliant tough race with navigation being the hardest part. So much so it is now my ‘A’ race of 2018 and I’m working to see how well I can run this great course.

This a fantastic but VERY tough event, I've tried and failed twice now but will be back in 2015 to finally complete it. The organisation is superb, thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
