    I did this over last weekend and was 6th overall and just about retained the MV40 title from last year by 6 seconds! For those who asked about this event, the details are here. The event starts on the Saturday with parkrun, followed later with a 10k race and then a 4.5k cross-country race in the afternoon. Sunday morning starts with a half marathon followed by a 1 mile time trial at lunchtime....

    Well done tonight in slightly murky light, extrapolating from the average pace I suggest that the intervals were something around 750 Metres each.

    A few of us ran this today. Loved the course. It's undulating with a very nasty hill around half way. The bridge makes for a cool start and a hard finish - long ramp up to it, and the bridge itself feels like a long false flat after 11 miles. A few teething problems though. Chaotic parking, way too few toilets and some times missing from the results. My chip time isn't registered and Mickey,...

    For anyone thinking of trying fell racing, sugar loaf is a great one to start with. Nothing ridiculously steep on the up or down
