    Winter BG

    Simon Halliday from Clayton completed his second BG of the year this morning (22/23rd December). He did 23.56 in icy conditions. Has anyone ever done two BGs in a year before (Summer and Winter)?

    Not sure...I've never heard of anyone complete two BG's in the same year. Fantastic achievement well done to Simon and everyone else involved in the round!!!

    Excellent effort - I bet he had to step on the gas the last few miles, a close thing for the sub24.
    Any damn fool can make money, show me someone who can make time.

    having completed in 23:57 myself I know how it feels, and also how it feels at 24:03 on my first winter attempt. The former is much better than the latter!

    Very well done.

    Mrs Real Ale here, glad to see someone else was daft enough to do a Winter Round, my husband set off on his round (on his own and also his second) on Thursday evening. Some pictures from one of the team:
