What a great run!
Sharon, Sue and Mark H (with Molly the dog) set off at 8.30am. I tried to encourage Sharon to wait but she’d been up since 5am and was raring to go!
Aileen and John left at 9.10am and I set off at 9.28am deciding that Marco would soon catch me. He started 10mins after me. John M caught up with me after the first 5mins having started from Tyndrum at 8.30am. Thomas started from Tyndrum at 9am.
I can honestly say that was one of my best runs on the whw. I ate regularly throughout the run and never felt I ran out of energy. Marco caught John and I about 35mins before Kingshouse and I ran with them the rest of the way. Thomas caught us just before the Devil’s staircase and pushed on. I was very impressed that Marco resisted going with him.
Marco and I opened a bit of a gap on John M over the Lairig Mor. We caught Sue about 2miles before Lundavra and John & Aileen at Lundavra. Marco and I pushed on into Fort William finishing in 6hrs 54mins 39secs. (My target for the day had been 6hrs 55mins!!). It must be said that Marco’s time is 10mins quicker as he started 10mins after me!!
I will write a full report asap but here are the details of the run on RunningAhead …
Plus lots of photos of the route to come soon.
