MTBO 2:40:00  28.0 km (5:43 / km)
MTBOoooh at Muckleford. Because of my blister (only one now), l can't run so opted for the longer course 3. It was pretty tough, with a fair bit of rocky single track and l took it easy, making sure l didn't fall off the orange monster, of which l am now a little more fond. There were a lot of unmarked tracks, many of which were water courses cleaned out after the recent rain and l went down a couple by mistake. The highlight was arriving at lots of controls at the same time as a couple of young fit blokes and l had them worried, but it turned out they were doing course 2 and had been to other controls in between. I helped pack up and had a yummy savoury scone and a lot of water at Newstead afterwards. It was a long but great day.
