Good work, Neil ??. I think finishing at Winchester is probably the more inspiring choice! And you're right... something has to be done about that route marking!!!

Hi Neil / Jamie et al - just a big shout out to the times laid down previously on this route. I did it yesterday and dipped under the mark Neil set but I could not have done that without pacers at the end. That is some mark you set - thanks for putting a time out there that is really challenging. I might be back for an unsupported attempt....

Kudos! I know it's not an easy route to follow, especially when you reach Surrey.
