    Well it was a bit claggy in places which made the route finding a bit more fun.

    Many thanks to the organisers and all the marshalls for putting on an excellent race. A query for others though:

    I was recording the route on Viewranger on my phone (locked away in my bumbag before anyone asks! I was using my map printout and trusty thumb compass to navigate). I took pretty much the optimum line but have recorded ~1500m of climb which is a fair bit more than the advertised 1220m. A quick check of the map shows that 1500m is more likely than 1200m so I was wondering if anyone else had recorded their climb stats?

    I noticed that. I clocked 11.5miles and ~4,800ft which is about a mile shorter and a fair bit more climb than the advertised 12.4miles/4003ft. Fell running is never an exact science I guess?!

    When I did it in 2011 I measured it as 11.2 miles and 1800m ascent!

    Jack looks to have run the quickest time for years in winning it this time, Ricky wasn't too far behind either. I checked results back to 2010, and Jack is just ahead of RFR's quick time from a few years ago. Ricky was obviously only a few seconds behind and then he also has a couple of quick times from recent years. Top effort by Jack, I assume as the clag came down for part of it that the time was down to him & Ricky hammering each other round. Long way to go to the record mind, but good to see fast time and a proper race for the win.
