Nick Hodgkinson reports from the south coast:
A very interesting little pre-Christmas adventure. Run partially on the shingle beach, but mainly on muddy trails close to the shoreline. Definitely not a PB course – I missed mine by nearly an hour and a half.
I can now enjoy being a sloth over Christmas with a clear conscience.
The winner was Anthony Clark in 2:41:33 (Poole Runners), and I was 839th in 4:35:57. There were 1700 starters and 1252 finishers (the tide got the rest).
