A rather wet and miserable day on a normally stunning route across Worcestershire. Muddy throughout, and sadly no views from the big climbs! The route is fairly easy to navigate with way-markers mostly clear and obvious.
The big finish up North Hill in the Malverns made it a challenging finish, but very glad to sneak under 5 hours.
Just the one water top-up from family at Knightwick, otherwise solo throughout. Not many options for self-replenishment of supplies, as the route is mostly rural.
