28th August UTMB update

Just a quick post to say I had a good run at the TMB. The course was changed quiet significantly at the end of the route, due to landslips caused by storms,  making for a slightly longer and rougher route. In my opinion this route is tougher than the standard TMB course. So it makes me even more pleased with my finishing time of 29 hours 29 mins and in 44th place. I dreamed of a top 50 place so it is a real bonus to get it. The weather was rough at the start, and combined with rough ground I think will have caused one of the biggest drop out rates ever. We will know when the 21:00 hrs cut off is reached tonight.
I will do a full report when I have had more than 3 hours sleep in 3 days.

Thanks Emma all things came together and made it a good run for me. I really enjoyed it despite the weather at times, and the confused route.
