Race summary Please read John's write up, Well done John. The course was predominately trail paths through beautiful picturesque countryside, however due to recent heavy rain in the Berkshire area the paths were very muddy with large sections of unearthed flints on top of the slippery surface. The weather on the day was perfect for running. The race started at 0900 on a warm sunny day. There were over almost 300 runners taking part of which only 67 managed to finish the entire 40 mile route. There were 219 finishers in the 20 mile race. As part of my preparation I went to Compton with the intention of running the 40 mile race, however due to having only been back running for a week after almost 3 weeks out with a foot injury I only managed to complete 20 miles (1 lap). The fact that I failed to complete the 40 miles is a set back in my training for the GUCR, but I am still confident I can get back on track with only 8 weeks to go to race day.
