Topic - My GUCR

Nick Harvey - on 05 Jun 2012
Hi everyone,

I got some really good advice from you guys in the run up to my Grand Union Canal Race attempt, so thought some of you might be interested in how I got on.

Suffice to say I didn't quite finish, but I don't think I have ever been quite so close to wearing my body out. I lasted 39 hours and covered 127.5 miles. So I dropped out a mere 17.5 miles from the end - such a short amount in distance, but also at the speed I had been reduced to, another six or seven hours! It rained pretty much the whole time, wearing out my feet and making me very cold - I am pretty sure I would have finished otherwise. I can't honestly say it was all that much fun, but hey, I gave it a good go.

I've written a bit more on it here:

Once again, thanks for the help and happy running.

Finally, a climber again.
