Mark Nutter, not to be confused with our long time friend and stalwart of fell running from Clayton, is a relatively new member of BFR. He wore his vest for the first time in this event and he commented on it as follow:
I really enjoyed this morning's little outing and got round the 13.1 miles in 1:57:45 and was really pleased to get under the two hours. I was 2067 overall and 133rd in the over 45's. I didn't quite realise just how hilly the course would be as it has lots of pretty steep hills, primarily it felt like a down hill trend to Wembley and the half way point but then mainly up hill back to the Saracens ground where miles 11 and 12 were both a bit of a killer. Couldn't help but compare it to the GNR where there are mainly only two long killer drags over the course that last for a couple of miles each. Today was tough, but I think I did prefer it to the GNR!
