Set off from Bowness-On-Solway just before 4am Saturday morning arriving in Wallsend around 7.45pm that evening.

We ran together throughout carrying most provisions with us from the start but stopping to buy drinks and some food at around km's 50, 90 and 115.

The conditions were perfect, touch of rain in the afternoon but generally dry underfoot.

We both suffered with a lack of energy, probably after too many races recently, so it was tough going at times, especially for the middle section. The target of around 14 hours pretty quickly went out of the window!

The route was really nice. Runnable and great scenery for the middle section.

Gpx's from both Dave's and Mark's watch are attached.
