Today’s event definitely had a John Foxx-theme. The tricky longer legs required a decision about which underpasses to take. I’m still not sure I made the right choices but my time was okay: 24:25, compared to the winner’s 17:something.

I’m now comfortably ensconced in Little Stainton and ready for what might be a rather muddy day in the far north.

Competition entries: thanks to those of you who entered the competition. My time was 126% of Andy and Jason’s time, so Marian White wins the bottle. Congratulations and thanks!
