We Struggled…

With the epic uphill sections…My gosh were they steep!

Why this Race…

As soon as we saw the trailer for this race we knew we wanted to do it! If you haven’t run a trail race yet this is a great introductory race as it is only 21km. Once you’ve got some more practice in you can move on to the 47km or 117km if you’re feeling ultra 😉

Famous Faces…

Fellow Londoner Max Wilcocks

Rory Bosio and Fernanda Maciel – two incredible female trail runners

Mid run Brainwave…

H- I’m not entirely sure I’m going to make this!

E- H is incredibly slow today, must be the 12 pizzas consumed in the last 24 hours.

Number 1 Fan…

The whole of The North Face team! Big shout out to Pepito and Henning!
