In short:
A beautiful day out in the Dorset countryside! A hilly and challenging course with great panaramic views. A well-marked route with cheerful marshalls, well-stocked aid stations and the best supporter friendly finish to a race. Huge ice creams, and delicious burgers on the village green, lovely. Also, just about held off Holly Rush for 2nd place :P

In short:
Scenery as epic as the pain in my thighs

In full:
A beautiful course with outstanding organisation and the most friendly runners you could wish to meet. We started out with big ambitions before being humbled by the first hill within 500m of the start line, and then ran/walked the remaining 26, 27 ish miles in awe of what Dorset has to offer. My thighs developed Instantaneous Onset Muscle Soreness (an experience worthy of a new condition) about 16 miles in, but somehow this didn't matter and it was a pleasure to take on the course with my friend Ellie whilst we awaited news from the front. Would Holly beat Ed?
