great race on the full 25K Trail course, the first time I have ever run it. It was the most hardest course I have ever run but the views and weather were great for once. I took about 2:40 to run the course and this year I only fell twice, however I did fall into a pool of freezing cold fell water that went complexity over my head and certainly put a spring in my step just to keep warm.
After some dreadful weather over the lakes due to storm Brian, it was a shame that they had made a slight detour on the route and missed out the best bit anglers crag however it put a mile or so on the total distance. During the event we had worse weather than last year the wind howled at 40mph and near to the bottom of the lake it rained on us. A great race over some very rough tracks including numerous bogs. Hopefully will be back next year and try again. in the end i come 18th out of 99 runners.
