    You were only the last one to finish DinoF, I bet there were people who didn't make it as far as you that day!

    I thought I was last when I finished my first Wasdale. I wasn't bothered, just glad to get round. I assumed I was the last one through the cut off on Gable but I think the marshals were feeling generous that day. It was a surprise when one more came in behind me while I was 'recovering' on the ground.

    I was coming down Lingmell Nose and far below I could see there were only 3 cars left in the car park. One of them belonged to the race organiser.

    It's true, there are always plenty of DNFs at every Wasdale, WJB, so I didn't feel TOO bad

    Ha ha! I remember reaching the bottom of Gable with a small group and we knew it was going to be tight to make the cut off. I put a lot off effort in up the climb to make it and remember feeling pretty chuffed when I got through. That soon subsided as I dragged my sorry ass up to Esk Hause though!

    I wasn't too far ahead that year I finished in 6h21! I remember running with someone with my club until Pillar when the wheels came off! Dragged myself to the finish and thought I might be last until a few more arrived!

    I'm going to try not to be last, if I can actually make it back out to try a race this year! My last race (a couple of years or so ago) ended after a couple of hundred yards when I went into cardiac AF...........it was funny back at the finish being clean and looking fairly fresh as sweaty mud splattered friends came in ''you must have had a flyer - never saw you'' etc.
    A circular route mostly downhill

    I hope that you get back ok, Chris. You used to be quite a force. From what I remember, you were a crucial element of the support team on our Steve's BG Round, back in '94.
    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    1994! I was an athlete then - and that was quite a round in not the best of conditions - oh and the 'new improved Petzl Zoom'!

    Doing one of Brett's night runs some years ago (on my local fell race course as it happened), I was in bad shape for some reason and was definitely last until one Graham Breeze took a wrong turn and scuppered my plans! Damn you Breezy, damn you!

    Without me you'd be one place nearer the back
