Dunstable Downs Marathon Challenge 2015

My third attempt at the Dunstable Downs Marathon Challenge (actually about 27.4 miles).

This time with John from Trent Park.  We ran 23 miles together before I edged ahead, feeling strong for the long downhill finish.  No problems with navigation as I could remember the route from last year.  Lots of hills, great views from the top of the Downs and a mild day, with the sun out for the last hour.

4:10:50 for marathon number 86, with John arriving a couple of minutes later.  Given that John beat me at Three Forts last year, we definitely need a decider!  I was a minute slower than last year, but not fussed as I haven't been training much lately.
