Man V. Horse


A depleted turn out by Croft Runners for this years’ race, unfortunately Nicky, Jimi and Frank all succumbed to injuries leaving just Gary P and Gary G in the main event with Dave R senior and Tom D joining Gary G in the relay.
On an unpleasant day with torrential cold rain making underfoot conditions slippery and the river and stream crossings treacherous, Gary P ran an excellent race finishing 20th runner in a time of 2hrs 47 mins 46 secs. Gary G led off the relay team then continued the next 14 miles finishing 208th overall and 2nd over 60 in 3:26:15. The relay team, with Dave R taking the middle leg and Tom D the final leg, finished 144th in a time of 3:16:38.
The race was again won by a horse and rider in 2:08:37 the first individual runner finished in 2:25:45 and there were a total of 418 finishers.
