    What a great race. Best one I've done so far and managed to knock an hour off my last years time. Big thanks to Brett for the organising again

    Matt pt. I think it was me who passed you at the stile before Mankinholes. I didn't get much further myself before a started to feel really sick, good job the donuts were on hand for the slog up Stoodley, felt much better at the top although there was a chap who flew past me up there using poles.

    Would have been nice to put some faces to names of the forrumites as it looks like a few finished around the same time. I just scrapped the top 100 in 5:48.

    I need therapy.....
    I had the pleasure to witness Antisocial changing from a mild mannered? fellrunner into an evening gown wearing, cross dressing parking attendant.
    Kind of set the tone for the day really.

    Excellent day, organisation, route.

    Gates and Litter - got a telling off from the farm lady near the end of the long casuway section because her gates had been left open.
    Also picked up a few Go Gel packs on the route. Handed them over at Mankinholes and had a bit of a rant (sorry if that was you Biara).

    Met some great people (thanks John V from D Peak for the guidance) and led some people off route near the Golf course. Classic mistake I believe.(sorry )

    That's a brilliant run. Sorry, Adam, but I'm going to have to embarrass you!

    He's done a Bob Graham, 1st at Tanky's Trog(g?) last year, 3rd at HPM this year and now 1st in this race. And he's only 22! Fantastic stuff, Adam, well done.

    mmmm - that's where we got mislead......although it was more due to the lady behind us (who'd done the race before) telling us to go down at that point (up to us to check the map of course!). Quite amusing to run down "Hole Bottom Road" though.

    Would that be about right???
    It was a bit tongue in cheek putting the Greek text in there, but I thought there might be a possibility of gleaning some Poseur points...

    I wondered if anyone would ask. You haven't let me down, CCR.

    This Special Edition, time-limited signature is from a poem by C.P.Cafavy.
    It translates as:
    "Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
    Arriving there is what you are destined for.
    But do not hurry the journey at all."

    I heard it yesterday on the Radio 4 religious programme 'Something Understood'. It's called 'Ithaka'.
    The whole poem is worth reading, though perhaps not in the Babelfish translation!

    There are some good performances reported here. I'm so envious. I shall return next year (please God).
    I've just posted my report from a bystander's perspective.
