This is a hard route - leaving Milford and heading for a ridge run, dropping back down into the Belper Valley before another up hill section.
This really is a tough route and when racing last year completed this is 1 hr 31 mins.
Pushed hard in the first 2 miles up out of Milford and then settled down,
So So Muddy and sticky, really noticed this taking its toll on my legs,
Ran hard and kept pushing, Finished in 1 hr 21 mins
Thats 2 mins faster than 2nd Jan time, hope it keeps improving like this!
