Lakeland 100 Report

224 folk lined up for the start of the Lakeland 100 - only 116 finished!

Well the wheels eventually came off at Dockray, 49 miles into the event. Everything was going incredibly well at around 35 hour schedule when my right foot packed up reducing me to a very slow hobble. An old knee injury sustained at the 'Howling Howgills' KIMM in 1998 had been troubling me earlier in the event and I suspect that in overcompensating for this I increased the stress on my ankle and foot. Full results of a great event are here. Huge congratulations to Gary who finished in 49th in a time of 32:05:30. The winner Terry Conway broke the course record in an amazing time off 21:58:19
