    I really, really enjoyed this as my second ultra, it was my first of the Punk Panther series. It was really well organised and the aid stations well manned. I was slightly naive in that I wrongly thought that there were prizes for both the 51km and the 70km. I didnt understand the rewards process properly. I could t commit the time to the 70km as had to be back to Durham to collect kids- but I was ecstatic to finish at the church hall as the first female in from the 51km event. Ill definitely attend more Punk Panther races, and read the small print more next time
