The race is now less than 24hrs away. Just one more sleep and maybe a doze tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks to those who have sent in a guess for my little competition. It keeps me happy anyway. I had a total of 44 entries. Here is the full list …
Late entries (but still before the 5.30pm deadline)
Thomas Loehndorf 28:59:01
Dale & Denise Mathers 28:54:00
Dave Troman 29:15:00
Tracey Troman 30:00:00
Joe Brannon 28:47:00
It divides neatly into three groups ….
17 people guessed that I will finish under 29hrs. I would love to be able to do this and if all things goes well I do feel it is possible.
15 people guessed that I would finish with a 29hr in the time. I know it’s only 2secs difference but 29:59:59 sounds soooo much better than 30:00:01.
3. The sensible realism-ists
I know that’s not a word but hey it’s my competition. Given my last 2 West Highland Way races I suppose a time over 30hrs is far more realistic than a sub 30hr time but I still habour hopes that last year was a blip and I still have some decent times in these legs. 12 people are in this group
We arrived in Keswick at lunch time and we are staying (once again!) with Dave & Tracey. We’ll be heading down to Coniston tomorrow morning which will give us plenty of time to register, pitch our tent (and camper van for Dave & Tracey), sort out our drop bags and have rest before the kick off at 5.30pm
Remember you can follow our progress on the race web site …. and if you have time please send me a text (07905 218162) to encourage me on my way!
The race numbers are now on the web site. I’m number 131.
