It was a great course, great weather and scenery.
I underestimated the course and went out a bit too hard. Did the first 20 miles (4 Mynds) in 3:30, the next 6 miles (incl Mynds 5 and 6) took me 1:15 and those were the two long steep climbs by which time I was pretty tired. Kept moving well and drank loads - 5l or thereabouts throughout the day - and came in 6th.
Felt like managed food and water ok, energy was ok throughout the day but running too hard down the first descents took a toll on my quads which meant I was pretty tired by the end and I am suffering today!
Quite a few runners were just done at the end, sat there looking glazed/in shock and I suspect they were all tired but mostly had got dehydrated. As the day got hotter we moved onto the areas of the Mynd that were sheltered from the wind and there was very little shade.
The final part of the final club was an absolute killer. Up through bracken on an exists-on-map-only path and very steep. A few people said they were on hands and knees to get up.
Only made one minor nav error when my watch got confused as we ran back along a section we'd done previously, but I corrected quickly and didn't lose much time.
