Pleased with time - it's a tough course:https://www.strava.com/activities/370282429
takes in Beacon Batch trig point twice
as well as going up Cheddar gorge.
3rd until 11k or so and the second time up to the trig point; then destroyed up the hill by Justin. http://www.webscorer.com/results?raceid=48995&...
At 3km or so I bashed my head on a branch. For a few hundred metres I was thinking "Hmm, that hurt quite a lot" and then went to wipe sweat out of my eyes - turned out it was blood, and there was also blood spattered down my face, chest, vest, legs...it was everywhere. The marshals kept asking if I was okay. I did feel a bit woozy -but it was a very hilly HM, so it's hard to know if that was related to the injury or not. Anyway, the St John ambulance guy at the end cleaned it up a bit and recommended I go to the minor injuries place to get it stitched or glued together... I haven't done that, but I will tomorrow if it's still bleeding I guess. Four
other people came in afterwards to have the same treatment! I think it was due to it being at the bottom of a muddy slope, so you'd been carefully watching the ground for several hundred metres beforehand. Then I was so close to the person in front of me that I didn't see it until too late.
