    If you want to see what the course is actually like, this is the only video that really comes close.

    So: steep but runnable orienteering terrain, just like in many parts of Britain. Except that orienteers would regard a 16km course in that terrain as rather long; how long is the Barkley, again?
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    An Englishman was the first person ever to complete the Barkley proper... (100 miler and not the fun run 60 miler). He trained mainly in the Lakes.

    James Elson, Paul Giblin and Nicky Spinks are there for the brits this year. Especially looking forward to seeing how Nicky gets on...first female finisher?
