2 minutes faster than last year – 1 hour 1 minute. Found it very hard. Didn’t walk, apart from some of the uphill – there is 1,600’ of it though so that’s my excuse! Tim Ruck beat me, after promising to do so at the start – I think he was still sore after me beating him at Herod Farm back in April J
Took the path along the edge this time, as opposed to cutting across the tussocks. I think the tussocks are easier, if you can find a good line. This course is very runnable but the distance combined with the climb makes it very painful too! The pint in the Boar’s Head afterwards was very welcome.
