Report from President Matt Podd:
Well done to all who completed this today – it was challenging. Not sure if everyone got home safe as I was hypothermic and needed to lie in the bath for a long time.
Well we all met up at St Oswald, with a large Black and White contingent and as we were led out to the start it commenced with the rain – which was a feature of the day – some may say negative. Very wet and slippery round the course, with sleet at times and appalling visibility. Spent a lot of the time running in my own bubble, and I’m glad I know the route. Saw some friendly faces on the way round – cheers Mark and Graham – others saw Andrew. I’ve done this race a few time and today was special, but all praise to the marshals and feed stations – who were cheerful and fed us well.
Saw a few folk when I finished Mr Rombalds himself – it wasn’t his year, Shane, Ross, Tom P, and Kirsty arrived soon after me. Hope the others are not too traumatised – for a lot this is their longest outing. Lots of photos on Sport Sunday here 🙂
