Completely agree with your summary. Not a race but survival.
Maybe we can go rerun some (nice) day?
Yes please! I was really enjoying the first half and actually the last bit looks fun from my warm sofa :)
If we could get permissions sorted, and the stiles, I'd happily get it set up again. Desperately sorry that it turned out the way it did, as my prime reason for taking the planning on was the (possibly unique) chance to plan genuine M/W21E races.
It's a shame for you that it turned out that way. I usually relish the chance of a proper long race, which made it more disappointing for me that I couldn't cope in that weather! Certainly no complaints about the distance from me :)
Yeah no complaints at all about the course awk, thanks for the physical and technical challenge - just disappointed I didn't get the chance to do it justice!!
