Report from Lisa Maughan:
To say that I was nervous about this race is a bit of an understatement, I was petrified! My hamstring has been niggling me this week, I had only recced the first half of the course and I had never done the distance off road before. I decided to go steady and use it as a training run. I actually felt really good until mile 17, when I crashed badly, but I quickly realised I hadn’t taken on any fuel. Two slices of malt loaf and an energy gel, and after a couple of miles I got my second wind to take me to the finish.
All in all it was a great race, well organised, friendly runners and a lovely route (except for the killer hill at the end!). I was pleasantly surprised with my time too, 5hrs 43 mins, well under my 6 hours target.
