As can be seen from the split positions at checkpoints 3. 7 and 9, I was off like a bat out of hell whilst Barry ran a very consistent race and is to be congratulated on being the first U50 home.
It was a very hot day and once again I forgot my drinks and food and just about everything else. Barry caught me at the control in the marsh below the Big End (just like he did last year!) and proceeded to burn me off to the tune of 55 places. I was totally zapped by this point and had to walk down the road to the finish so bad did I feel! (Amazing what a little mars bar can do but there was no Neil Goldsmith to oblige this time). Incidentally, where was the Vets trophy? Answers on a postcard please to D. Southern in Barnoldswick!
