That was the plan; to get around the course before my GPS watch conked out. Failing that, anything sub 6 hours was the aim.
At the Hidden Howgills marathon in May, my watch stopped at 23.93 miles with 5h:49m:03s on the clock with an official finishing time of 6h:20m:05s.
So how did I get on this time?
Well, my watch decided to give up the ghost a bit earlier this time and stopped at 24 miles dead with 5h:24m:49s on the clock. My official finishing time was 5h:55m:28s.
I didn’t beat the clock but I did get my sub 6 hour finish and knocked 25 minutes off my overall finish time.
Very pleased with that.
