The Vitruvian Middle Distance
by Jane Wiley
Mike Clyne reminded me what a 'nice race' this is - it was the second middle distance event I did - 7 yrs ago - and it really is a great race - eminently sensible, ie clear routes and signage; good marshaling, good 'freebies' (T shirt, hoodie, H20 bottle, gels) and the course while not easy has a bit but not a lot of 'omg' challenges. I have never raced at an event with non stop rain - now, I have. Thankfully it was relatively warm rain - but heavy. Suspect the rain slowed bike pace the most - and certainly increased DNF's - out of the sold -out 1000 entries, there were about 25 DNF's.
