Stunning event.

And here is my crappy blog post (and photo's) which simply don't do it justice, but might persuade some of the merits of a journey down to south Wales.

Mine also a sad tale like matts . My wife and I pre entered via si entires and Booked a the caravan club site close by for Friday night in our campervan just over a week prior to the event . Both looking forwarded to it then the bombshell dropped . I had to go to Irvine in Scotland for a 10am Friday meeting which ment I didn't get home to West Midlands to late Friday night
Which ment no event next day . Maybe next year

Thanks very much everyone for the lovely comments. We've had nice feedback via email and via our active facebook page too. A special thanks to John Pennifold for making the video. It gives entrants a real insight into the route (apart from where he didn't check his compass bearing, eh John?!!!).
The pleasure is ours in seeing everyone having such a great time!!

Commiserations to Matthew & Jane Hand. Most people have many electronic devices capable of operating as an alarm. When I need to get up I set my watch alarm and my mobile-phone alarm. When I REALLY, REALLY must wake up I usually find a third device too.

Mine is a sad tale for this event. I decided to do the walk on Thursday, so Friday night I had all my kit in the car, entry form filled in and ready, route description printed off, OS map marked up etc. etc.

And my alarm clock didn't go off (it is genuinely busted I have now found). So I overslept and missed an event for the first time in my life! I could probably have just made the 9.0am start, but a very hurried 60 mile drive with no breakfast or time for any, would have been a bad start to a long day.

Went for a lovely run from home instead, lovely day for it - will try again next year!!!
Matt.
