bullet11th April 1999
bullet26.2 miles
bulletRiver Spey, Scotland, UK
bullet5 Hours 4 mins

Was a surprisingly hilly course as path drifted away from river and back as we followed its course to the sea. Got badly upset stomach at 20 miles and was forced to walk to finish... the weather was good at start but after 3 hours it was cloudy with high wind and heavy rain.

Was happy to finish even though I had to walk the last 11 miles and the drive up the day before was 8 hours from Bristol... probably why had upset tummy..!!  Winner did it in 3H 01 min and he went on to win the 100KM world championships a few weeks later in a time of 6H 20 mins.... 10 miles per hour for 62 miles...!!!!
