    Fabulous running, great photos. Elevation profile looks tough. How are you feeling and would you recommend it as a race? Well done

  16. Scott Hunter

    That's awesome. I can only imagine how mentally and physically tough this must have been when your body is screaming at you to stop. I find 26.2 hard enough, another 18 must be like torture.

  17. Michael Hunt

    Superb stuff Tobit, that looks like one tough race, well done on getting the job done :)

  24. Tobit Emmens

    thank you all so much for your kind words, to answer some questions / make some comments

    Con, the shirt was great, although someone wanted to know where my tie was. I told them ties are for weekdays
    Sarah - it is a truly spectacular and brutal run, and bar a 6 or so mile stretch of road / pavement, its mostly single track, involving boulder fields, jungle like sections, many many steps, scrambling and some of the most amazing views I have ever run walked to!
    Scott - yep - I was pretty close to stopping a couple of times, and close to tears more than once - it was relentless!

  25. Sarah C.

    Sounds like a great challenge!

  26. Tobit Emmens

    Mike - thanks - you did well too!
    Kate, no pint, but tea, snickers, ice-cream and peanut butter cookies
    Andrew - the hardest run I have ever done!

    I will add something by way of description, and some more photos at some point!

  27. Tom Wright

    Well done Tobit ya did great :) Cracking photos too! Capture the essence of the terrain and views. How fun those boulders at St Loy!?!?

  28. Joe B.

    Excellent run Tobit

  29. Gareth O.

    Chapeau Tobit. Truly incredible feat of endurance. Well done old chap and money raised for a worthy cause too.

  30. Martin H.

    Looks like a tough one. Awesome work!

  31. Andy W.

    Totes amazeballs ;-)

  33. Johnny Logan

    Superb. Congrats

  34. Conrad W.

    This one has just gone on The List.

  35. Tobit Emmens

    some more photos added - I'm glad I took them, a reminder of the epic-ness of the run. I don't seem to have any of steps up the side of Minack, possibly for fear of falling off them (here is a taster, they get steeper http://www.360degreebeaches.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/porthcurno2-e1425843707253.jpg)
    Thanks Tom - how are you feeling today?
    thanks Joe, Gareth, Martin, Andy, Mel and Johnny

  36. Tobit Emmens

    Do it Con - despite the pain, I am already planning my revenge for next year. if you do though, train for steps, thats my advice, and if you have hills where you drop 150ft over about 25 meters, and then go straight back up, that will help too!

  37. Dave Compton

    Excellent Tobit. Looks truly brutal. + what Scott said

  38. Tobit Emmens

    thanks Dave

  39. Tom Wright

    A little stiff in the knees and eating tank loads. Got some serious tan lines and my left shoulder is a lot redder than my right! (forgot the suncream) So you are thinking about next year already then? :)

  40. Tobit Emmens

    apps ont he suncream front Tom - I remembered to put the factor 30 on! Definitely looking to come back next year. At least now I know what to expect!

  41. Susie Chan

    Fantastic!!! X

  42. Tobit Emmens

    thanks Susie

  43. Tobit Emmens

    I think that should say 'oops on the suncream' Tom. still fatigued.

  44. john low

    Cracking run geezer!

  45. Tobit Emmens

    cheers John

  46. Phil Davey 🇬🇧

  48. Tobit Emmens
