Loved my first WF50 and pretty much everything about it (though I wish I'd known that my start time would be recorded at 0930 even though I started a little later). My thanks to the veterans from the Bristol area who kindly guided me through the first part of the night, and for their stories. On the way home, I saw lots of surfers, and realised they must be riding the Severn Bore. They told me I'd missed it, but it actually takes a long time to get round the big bend in the river so I managed to catch it further up - first time I'd ever seen it. Thanks Bristol and West for introducing me to a wonderful area. I'm now planning to return with my family.

Thanks for taking the trouble to post about the WF50. However, I must point out to Andrew that we also had help from our friends across the border in Wiltshire who did a fine job at St Briavels.

A great event, the countryside at its best and wonderful support & food at the checkpoints. Many thanks to B&W and all the marshalls for your hard work.

oops!, hit the wrong button there.

As I was saying the the Bristol and West group were aided at checkpoints by members of the Dorset and Cornwall & Devon group. So my thanks goes to you folks as well.

Thank you B&W :-)

Another third year, another Wye Forest 50.

Great day was had by me and I'm assuming by everyone else. The weather was faultless as was the route description. A few new sections including a short length of Offa's Dyke footpath just after St. Briavels which was so steep the path has been replaced with a wooden staircase. I walked most of the route alone which gave me the opportunity to listen to the early evening bird song. I don't profess to be a 'birdie' but the sounds were great. The bluebells seem a little late this year which was a pity but we can't have everything.
