89km, 4800m climb. My time: 15hr 15min
Tough day out. I wasn't sure how I'd get on as I've not done a long run for a while and only done some slow short plods occasionally. I definitely lost some fitness since Dragons Back and SW100. I felt weaker on the ascents in particular and I felt a big slow down after the half way mark.

What did I learn? I need to get back to running and in particular develop my leg strength through doing squats/lunges again.
I finished 11th overall out of 85 starters and 70 finishers. The top 3 did it in 11hr 34mins! WOW.
