Mourne Mountain Marathon Day 1
Running Elite with Matt Vokes.
Started off in Donard Forest and the East side of Commedagh, before a cluster on Commedagh, round to Hares Gap, Windy Gap by Brandy Pad, then to Meelbeg and Carn. North of Slievenagore to cross Silent Valley Dam, then another cluster on shoulder of Binnian before into the finish.
No problems with nav, and moving at a decent pace. Good to get to the finish before the rain started, so we could just lie in the tent for the entire afternoon.
Sitting in 1st overnight
