Race summary Karen was supposed to be going for a short recovery run this weekend, but then a friend suggested she joined her for a marathon on the South Downs. The pre-race email said it was likely to be muddy and that the course would be marshalled by search and rescue volunteers, so Karen was on for a tough run. Right from the start they headed up ... and up ... and up, followed by down and down and .... you get the picture. Over the two laps we climbed 1299m! The route was beautiful, though, and the aid stations had a random mix of creme eggs, cheese and pineapple on a sticks and popcorn. Luckily there was a generous cutoff of 7 hours, so I took it as scenic jaunt/picnic, getting round in 5 hours 30. Well done Karen.
