The 35th Gatliff Marathon 2018 Report

It was foggy driving down over the North Downs to the start. It looked like it was going to be a murky day. I was expecting a couple of brief showers but the rain was heavy and persistent in the early part of the Marathon and some light showers returned in the late afternoon. At… Read More

However some things never change; looks like I will lose about 4 toe nails. They’ve only just grown back from last year! This year the… Read More
