Ultra - 50 Miler - 21 February 2015  (Report from Natalie Southgate)

Well we did it a bit slower than we planned but still not a bad time 14 hrs 40 mins.  The thing that slowed us down was the mud it was really slippy and boggy I nearly lost a hoka 3 or 4 times :).   It was a really tough course as Paul Robinson found out - he passed us at about 15 miles in and finished in 11hrs 40 mins,  I spoke to him yesterday and he didn't think it was going to be that hard a course.  We were glad to get the cliff top section out of the way in the daylight.  We were hoping to get to check point 4 as it got dark I think we got there at 6pmish.  We stopped for a warm up cup of coffee and to add on extras to keep warm as it was getting really cold, headlamps on and it was 8 mile to the next and final checkpoint - harder in the dark as you could easily miss a way marker that you needed to find but we got there to check point 5 - quick gulp of hot drink then off.  At this point my right foot was painful on evey step but we kept moving, pace at this point was slow but 4 miles to finish kept us going.  I was glad at this point that I had my poles with me, they were a great help. You can imagine our delight to finish we were on a high but shattered. (and the answer is yes I probably would do it again as had a fab day all in all)
