The route consisted mainly of paths and trails and much of it was boggy and underwater which added to the interest.

Weather: Dry for the first half hour or so before drizzle set in which gave way to rain. Then there was more rain and it eased off before raining again. On Saturday afternoon the sun came out and it was quite warm before the rain started which got heavier later.
There was a shorter version starting at Dalemain of just 50 miles.
Finishers: 662 (all within 24 hours)
