Amazing day. Truly memorable. The organisation was great, and everyone at the aid stations and start/finish were genuinely brilliant. Couldn't have asked for more. The route was brutal, but awesome. A good variety of technical trails, fell-type fields, a little but of road, and lots of gravel tracks. A nice mix of scenery as well. Absolutely thoroughly enjoyed it. One star lost because there were points where I had no idea where to go, even with the route on my watch. That's a minor issue though, and totally eclipsed by the memories made today. Thanks to all involved.
