||25th Mar 2006
||20 & 40 Miles
||A tough multi-terrain course across rolling landscapes with a few steep (i.e. only walkable) hills thrown in for good measure. Poor course marking at one point meant that a good section of the pack added an extra mile loop to the route!
Conditions: Hot and sunny for the first hour becoming more cloudy and breezy as time went on. Damp underfoot from the overnight rain; but still reasonably firm.
Hot showers, tea, coffee and cake (with school dinners for the forty milers) were good reward for a generally well-organised event.
