In short:
Lovely and flat, nearly a PB and upgraded my start for Comrades

In full:
Lots of different distances being ran along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, I did the 32 mile ultra last year, so knew the course was relatively flat to give me a chance of breaking the 4:20 time for F Batch at Comrades. During the run I thought there was a chance of beating my PB from 8 years ago of 4:15:13 but it wasn't to be and happy with 2nd best out of 15 marathons, especially as it's upgraded my start for Comrades. Well fueled by a plentiful supply of Jaffa Cakes, Jelly Babies and drinks and lots of encouragement from the GRIM UP NORTH team with plenty of cake, chocolate and beer/cider at the end. What more could you want? :-)
