41 miles of flat trails from Newport to Burton upon Trent with a bonus of flooded fields to wade through near the end courtesy of recent inclement weather. First man Alastair Payne 5:54:51; first lady Helen Corrin 6:28:58; first (and only) DPFR runner Steven Jones 7:59:25 34th place. 131 starters and 119 finishers. The route has only 242m of ascent and 267m of descent to it was effectively a downhill race and a good tune-up for future events.
