I honestly have no idea what went wrong with this race. I wasn't perfectly clean, and there were a couple of larger mistakes (specifically to 18 and 25) but the running speed just wasn't there. Got caught 4 mins by Harry by 18, then stuck with him for a bit but was really fighting to keep up. The terrain really didn't suit me well - lots of low vis stuff, constantly pushing through branches. Give me a vast open bog anyday.
15th and not happy.
