Finally these tips are from Lucja Leonard (aka Running Dutchie) for anyone who wants to compete, which is different to completing:

– Be well organised, have your food ready to hand and quick change arounds if you need to replace food top ups with items out of the back of your bag

– Do not stop for pasta party, I made up so many spots here

– The race is runnable, don’t be put off by the hills, jog them up steady and carry on

– Take salt tablets, it was warm last year and that affected me in the last 20k by not being able to keep food down which in hindsight I put down to lack of salt, I did have some but not enough

– Have fun!
