Great North Walk 100-miler Race Report: It begins…

Hi, Roger again. I’ve put the race report from the 100-miler that beasted me on the weekend on my blog http://www.runeatsleeprun.com. It was an incredible way to finish this month of ultrarunning adventure but hardly an outing in high-paced glory. Rather, it was a total sufferfest. As much as it became a battle for survival, more or less, it is still one of the most meaningful finishes I have ever achieved. My crewman Graham and pacer Jess were exceptional and I certainly put their patience to the test. Let’s face it, we all expected a Sunday lunch on the beach and instead found ourselves literally racing against the clock right to the 160th kilometre.

It wasn’t necessarily what it was hoped to be, but it was raw, it was heartfelt, it was do or die, and at the end of the day, if an event is all of those things and more, what more could you possibly ask?
