Race summary John took on the Gatliff 50 Marathon. This was an off road event which started out at Edenbridge Rugby Club and went out through Ashdown Forrest and the surrounding countryside. The route was in fact 54 k (34 miles). The route description which you were provided with to navigate yourselves around the course was 10 pages long. The route was uneven under foot and had numerous uphill sections. If that wasn't hard enough you had 61 styles to climb over and numerous gates to go through. The course was testing and hard work but very enjoyable partly to the fantastic scenery. John completed the course in 9 hrs 19 mins which despite being a slow pace was valuable time on my feet as I prepare for my Ultra challenges in 2017. Good luck John!
