The sacks of dates and sultanas at CP2 were a brilliant idea. Dates = instant energy, and you can walk off with a handful to eat as you go.

On behalf of the Thames Valley Group, thank you for your "thank you's". A fine day and a record number of entries made it a good day for the organisers too.

The results and a brief report are on our website at http://www.thamesvalleyldwa.org.uk/oxon4020.html

Many thanks to all the back-room crew. Especially Ivan who was such a help sorting me out in the run-up. Everyone was so friendly - entrants, marshalls and even passers-by. Must be something about living in such a beautiful area?? Wonderful route (although I could have done without the Hurrah Henrys on the last stretch!). NOTE TO LADY WHO REMEMBERED ME FROM EASTBOURNE AGM: Really embarrassed I didn't remember you at first. Placed you about 3 miles into the walk - but too late to tell you by then!!

Really enjoyable. Excellent route variety with some tough ascents. Good to get more miles and hills into the legs for the 100. Fantastic support at checkpoints. Many thanks to all involved.

Totally agreed - great route and lovely bluebell woods along the way, some challenging hills, nice easy flat sections too. Great event and really well organised and very sensible rules / kit requirements i.e. apart from a mug use your common sense - so refreshing!!!

Oxfordshire in Springtime: bluebells in the woodlands, gambolling lambs in the meadows, cricket on the village green. The Henley set on the Thames riverside looked down on us from their sartorial heights as we passed, caked in mud and sweat, little guessing we could look on them from the moral heights of having just having completed 40/20 miles. Beautiful route, well catered, dry weather. Friendly faces, smiles and encouraging words at the checkpoints. Thank you, Thames Valley
