This weekend we flew all the way up to Edinburgh from Stansted so I could take on the penultimate MHSOTF. Having already done London, Cardiff and Nottingham I had a good idea what was coming in terms of obstacles. But the hills took me by surprise! That and the steps! So many damn steps! I don’t think we ran on flat for more than a few hundred yards!
This event is definitely the most city centre based race of the series so far and as a result they couldn’t fit anything huge in. The travelator was only two lanes rather than three this time. The air jump being based along the royal mile was cool as it meant it had lots of spectators. We took in some amazing scenery along the way and I got to see bits of Edinburgh I have never seen before and a few familiar sights from when I did the marathon.
Check out the video to see some of what I took on!
And finally next week it will be Manchester!
