Gatliff report coming soon

An apology to my Dear Readers about the lateness of my race report for the Gatliff 50km that I ran this morning but it will come very soon as I am a tad tired.

I can tell you that in fact we ran 34.8 miles and took approximately 8 hours, it sounds a long time for the distance but we did take it easy due to Brecon Beacons Ultra next Saturday and we had an accumulative rise of 3825 feet, numerous foot bridges, stiles & gates to climb and hills to ascend.

No injuries to report, feeling incredibly fresh but my feet do feel a little sore from the pounding.

More tomorrow


  1. A fantastic run and great to spend the day with you and George. Sorry I didn't realise how far ahead I'd gone at the top of the Greensand way and after the descent to Chartwell and up again I waited for ages and then I ran on.

    Great run. 3825ft???!!!! Wow!

    Good luck next weekend

  2. No problems with leaving us Rob, you were very strong at the end and when George realised we had beaten our PB for distance on that course we decided to just pull up and take it nice and steady. It was a really fun day, I still have a smile on my face from the various piss taking and commentaries of the day...a feel good race
