Just spoke to Daniel. He said to say thank you to everybody who has wished him well and also those who have donated.

He was placed 28-30!for most of the run and at mile 80 he missed a turn in the dark.

This took him down a steep 1.5 mile hill, only to get to the junction to find no sign, Feck, feck, feck.

He was so demoralised, the hill was the steepest of the whole 100 miles. He said he felt like crying at that point and he had enough.
He walked the hill and the only saving grace to come from his mistake was He met 6 runners on their way down the hill and told them to turn round.

He's such a good lad. Never ran for a bus until 5-6 yrs ago and neve been to a gym. Just decided to go running for something to do :-)

Edit: thank you to the moderator who without asking made the post a sticky. KRO.
We are glad it's over, the poor lad has got to drive back from Winchester now!

Excellent - very well done Dan. What an achievement. (tu)(*)

Oh and the wrong turn on the hill mistake put an hour on his time.
He was flying at the time and was passing runners.
He thought he would have made an early 20's position if it were not for that mistake :-(

:( Such a shame - but he still did extremely well and should be very pleased anyway (especially considering how much that hill would have taken out of him!).

103 miles!!!

Including voluntary/optional extra hill training.

And all in a Blues shirt plus the added threat of a time cut-off .

I hope I'm reading about this in the Mail next week, and I hope Dan gets some recognition from the club.

Fantastic effort!
F*ck me Dave you must be so proud- how do I donate- do I search his name?...sorry to ask a daft question but we never had a computer in our school and where I come from they still havent arrived

Very proud indeed. I love the spirit and determination he has. I'm sure it stems from me taking down At Andrews all those years.

Life ain't easy, but it's worth battling on for just rewards and being humble goes a long way

Thank you for helping out OUR Children's Hospital

Looked on the website. Male course record equates to less than 8.5 minutes per mile!

Thanks for delving into the stats. I'm with my all Son this week and he is still suffering. Sleeps like a baby in the day while I take care of our grandaughter.

He is still fragile.
Yet after a few beers it helps with the pain in his legs :-).

When reading the stats it blows me away and can't wait to share the updated stats.

Thankfully we are with our enormous family this week for a wedding so he can rest, otherwise he would have been struggling on a building site for a week trying to recover :-(
