Hard packed trails and minus 4 degrees air temperatures we thought we had the perfect conditions. The air temperature didn’t bother us but the frozen turf/mud hampered some of our running with a higher risk of rolling ankles.
Dom unfortunately developed a couple of blisters on his instep at around 10miles which unfortunately slowed his pace. We hope anyone going for the record enjoys the route as much as we did and we will be back for another attempt soon.
This was an unsupported effort done as a pair carrying all our own kit, food and drinks. We didn’t restock but if you needed to there is a shop in Scholes just off the route.
