    Wow! I can barely imagine the mental pain of that enforced forest detour!!

    Thanks guys! Tom -- the alternative to ploughing through the forest was to retrace my steps a couple of km and re-route -- just the thought of that almost made me cry :-)

    Nutjob. In the nicest possible way, but Nutjob nonetheless. Good effort.

    Congrats Charlie Wartnaby, that’s an impressive run! I hope you enjoyed it!

    Thanks guys, and yes I really enjoyed it -- inevitable video to follow once I've done it -- though my quads might say differently if they could talk!

    What did you eat and drink Charlie? I'm doing a 70m ultra next year and am fishing for ideas/info :)

  17. Charlie Wartnaby

    Way too much! I took similar food to when I did the BGR. I got through 4 little Snickers bars, maybe 3 Nature Valley cereal bars and two big bags (~200g) of softish sweets. Also had a big brioche loaf on the train beforehand. Also quite a few indigestion tablets ;-) But ended up bringing home about 8 cereal bars, stupidly -- took 10 hours less than BGR so shouldn't have had so much, and could have jettisoned some really, esp as shops en route. Just preparing video with all gory detail including full kit exposition, will upload tonight hopefully.

    Amazing stuff Charlie! Hope the quads get better.... Perhaps the UTMB next year?

    Ah the UTMB is Stuart's thing (or one of those Alpine races, anyway). Ought to do *something* silly in 2020 as that's when I turn 50...
