Impressive stuff Sarah!
I remember chatting to a woman at the LLAMFF and being all impressed at my sub 3hr time ...she then told me she was the commonwealth up hill champion "Sarah? Frost" from New Zealand... I picked up my pint and got my coat.
way to go Sarah - super impressive
G'day Andy - glad you like the blog :-)
You must have met Frosty! Anna Frost from NZ - she's an incredible athlete and just a lovely person and would kick my butt on an uphill run (and most of the guys too!). Reckon I might have a chance on this terrain tho!
Be great if more girls got out (and guys for that matter!) and had a crack at it! It's just a great little adventure at the end of the day.
PS - thanks everyone for the well wishes - I really worked hard reccying and training for this one so nice to see the training pay off. I intend to have another crack when conditions are next in to see if I can get under 1:40, so keep tuned to the blog.
Very impressive acheivement!
Ran this two weeks ago, 3 hours it took is, but we were a group of 5 and did plenty of stopping. Also started from down in the pass opposite the Grochan as the car parks were all full (by 8.20am! - see my Blog: http://www.heason.net/News_&_Blog/Blog/2011/10/03/Whats_Happening/).
Fantastic route. Is there an actual race? I guess it's too dangerous.
Another women's running record set in North Wales recently too: http://www.cmudc2011.org/news/11/09/lizzy-hawker-smashes-the-world-24-hour-record
