In short:
Great event. Respect to the runners that had already done 3 marathons. Really impressed with the low key friendly atmosphere. The weather was kind and the 5 laps of Rivington Pike as tough as expected with added 40mpf winds. Bit of a wobble at the end so time to play with getting an nice finishing time once the 5 hour target had gone.
