Race summary Please read what John had to say about the race below, well done guys on a tough race. On Saturday 17th January Nathan Bradley and I took part in the Country to Capital Ultra from Wendover to Little Venice, a total of 45 miles. The first half of the course was cross country and at approx. 23 miles into the run it joined the Grand Union Canal Path for the final 22 miles. The run started at 0830 outside the Shoulder of Mutton Public House near to Wendover train station. As the runners lined up at the start the snow started to fall which it did on and off for approx. 4 hours, on occasions becoming almost blizzard like. The underfoot conditions went from being frozen to becoming very wet and slippery due to the amount of rain in previous days, leaving some country lanes flooded. On reaching the Grand Union Canal Path the path was wet and on turning left onto the Paddington Arm the grass verge was flooded and extremely muddy making it difficult to get any grip. Nathan and I ran the race together.
