    Well, I got round in a wheezy 57 mins - which in view of some of the hills on this course I'm not too unhappy with.

    Winner got round in ( Jeez) 35 mins.

    For those of you with bad backs/knees/perinea - today i'm feeling 100% sympathy !

    About 50 metres of tarmac - the rest gravel tracks and forest footpath through dark woodland. Running over sweet chestnuts rather than pine cones but all same same going :-D

    Very well run event and by no means oversubscribed ( 3 other races in the area on the same day apparentely)

    Little dit from the 2:09 website:
    If they run it again next year I'll see if I can get a few ARRSERs to do it as a charity fing.

    ( I bet Cait could beat that First Female winning time - wouldn't want to do this race in January though ! )
