    Done three. Nice event. Save a bit for the Seven Sisters and largely uphill finish.

    DT, how did you find the climbing - I take it it's not in any way like a fell race?

    Is it substantially harder than an urban marathon?

    cos I've never even done one of those ....

    Majority is very runnable Z. Easier than Three Peaks and iirc no real hands on knees slogging. Running over the Seven Sisters then down to Berling Gap is the highlight. Half tempted to enter now! : )
