    I think its more "don't puke until you get over the line. They were in such a rush to reclaim my timing chip off my shoes the helper was in real danger. :vomit:

    I know that not everyone is at one with the LDWA but they run a very nice event in mid November that's worth considering. The Wensleydale Wedge. 23 miles and 2900 ft of ascent from Askrigg in Wensleydale. You can walk it or run it or do a bit of both. £10 to enter.

    It starts at 8AM and there's a cut off time at Castle Bolton, 16 (ish) miles in of 2:30PM. You've then got until 5PM to finish. There is a hot meal which is usually a kind of blind chili at the finish.
