steady run 2:35:00 
Passo Pordoi to Passo Sella over race route for most of the way. Tough climb to start +600m straight from start. Can’t say I ran much but power walked and passed maybe 150 people. Through the snow gate at Forcella (cut path through a big snow bank) then more crowds all the way to top of Piz Boe + 260m, felt good for most but struggled when I put in surges to get past walkers -probably the altitude. Passed another 150-200 people (there is a cable car option to high up). Topped out at3152m - record for this trip. Met another runner descending off Piz Boe towards Refugio Boe, he gained on me on scree but I was quicker on rock. Chatted and showed him map and route at the Rifugio then he stuck behind me - I think he didn’t have much of a clue about the route! Wonderful run from hut over a wee ridge then onto a real moonscape of bare rock and the descent started in earnest. We were moving fairly quickly and smoothly with occasional stops to take photos or check map. Little chat as very little of each other’s language! Split off when I turned right to head to the Passo Sella road and-he to head down to Cenezai. Path dropped and I missed a turning so ended too low on road, called S for a lift up to avoid the last 100m climb!
Great run out and pleased at how I felt throughout, only started to fade in last 15 mins ( didn’t eat and drank about 700ml of water.
