    A hard long race which should never be underestimated! Well done to all who made it round.

    A great day out with all fellow black and whites making it around within the cut off times. John once again showing us all how it’s done and not to forget Mr Lake finishing with a great time particularly with it being his first attempt. I’ll be aiming at spending the next year running up lots of hills to try and get closer to that 4 hour mark.
