Sorry to disappoint but I actually managed to stay on track with this race, could have been the huge well placed arrows or the marshals at every turn.

The start was on The Heath at the football club, great location, with a bar, beer, showers etc. The weather was good, cloudy and breezy with sunshine due. We took off at 9.30am pretty much straight on hilly ground, and it remained this way  - im sure there were more uphills than downs. Practically all of the run was on trail, fields and bridleways. Plenty of stunning scenery and even a ploughed hill in the  mix - in case you needed anything a little technical. Two water stations laden with bananas, jelly babies, marshmallows and smiling marshals .Had a few nice chats en route and saw Ian Sturgess and Steve Crane (that's him waving at the top of a pretty nasty hill - Church Hill at around 12 miles) For those with common sense there was also a 1/4 marathon to try out.

The finish was fab - excellent cakes including gingerbread men, carrot cake and chocolate cake. Free cups of tea and coffee, water and squash and a nice autumnal certificate for all the finishers. For 6 this is a good value race and if you need to make friends with a few hills I'd highly recommend it. My Garmin shows 2.11 on a 13.67 mile run.
