Very happy to confirm I was early. You never know whether there was a few second time delay between my iPhone mapmyrun timer and punching the start but I knew it was very close!
Happy with route, time and result. This must be the third or fourth time run on the Merewether map and I have never ever decided to take on the hills in the south west corner of the map!
Ian Dempsey and I were tag teaming from 1D to 1M and he opened up a long lead. He elected to head down and back for 3C whilst I thought I would be too late so I decided to consider 2A. At the base of the road leading up to 2A I realised it would be a steep climb but it was either that or come back early so went for it. I ended up 1 second under at 44:59 and Ian 1 second over at 45:01 so we ultimately ended up with the same points. He linked up 3E, 1J, 3B, 1H, 2E and 3H in a different order to me. It was interesting talking to people afterwards as everyone had a different sequential solution to the problem!
