- It starts and finishes at the breweries of some of my favourite ales, and you get to have a few beers at the end courtesy of Broughton Ales.
- It starts close enough for me to walk to the start (or jog if you are running late, which I was. Again!)
- It traverses through some really stunning landscape
- It is blimin' tough and a proper hill race - 19 miles long and over 5,000 feet of climb and descents in 4 distinct areas with sections of seriously rough and soggy moor. The sort of race that you start wondering how long you can keep it going far too early and feeling pretty broken by the time you finally get there.
|All smiles at the start - not sure how long they lasted|
