Well done to Garry Barnes and Al Harris on completing this 20-mile race, with it being Al’s first 20-mile race. Thanks to Garry Barnes for the following report: Organised by “the race organiser” this event includes a 10km and 10 mile option along with the 20 mile 4 lap race Warm conditions and a welcome breeze in places made for nice conditions although very tough psychologically being a lap event and going past the 19 mile board 4 times until it actually means only 1 mile to go does tend to grate a little.

Thanks to Steve Court for the following report:

7 Sphinxes ran this tough 20 miler in good weather. Course very undulating, not easy but 20 miles done

There was also plenty of other reports – the following from Lisa:

Oakley 20 miler done and dusted in 3 hours and 13 mins. Last 3 miles were absolute torture. Nearly started crying at mile 17, laughed hysterically at something unfunny at mile 18 and contemplated throwing myself under a truck at 19. Somehow managed to finish after almost taking a wrong turn a 19 and a half. Hanging up my long distance laces. Not even a medal for my efforts but nice hoodie. Enjoyable day with the team!

And Helen:

Whoo hoo Oakley 20 done! Would love to say that was easy but I’d probably be struck with lightening lol

And Mark:

Oakley 20 kicked my ***!
