Exmoor Trail Ultra

Race Date: Saturday, 17/10/2020
Race Distance: Other

An extremely tough day on Exmoor. 54km, but with 3000m+ of climbing, so it was seriously challenging, especially as the majority of the route was on very uneven surfaces. However, it was spectacularly beautiful, the weather was good and the race pretty well organised (and there were other distances). This was my first - and possibly last - ultra and lots of my fellow runners, out of a fairly small field of about 100, were frighteningly good and slightly crazy, but also very encouraging and friendly. It took forever, but what a feeling when I finally finished!
