I wasn’t running it this time but managed to get up and spectate. We went up to Burbage North by which time the runners had done around 2/3 of the route and almost all the climbing.

However long the runners took to get there they are all heroes for taking part and they were rewarded with an excellent night and a stunning sun set to warm their backs as they headed back towards the finish.
I did take a bucket load of photos and here they all are:
