Haha! 9 hours. 5,500ft of elevation. Carrying full kit... first aid, wet weather kit, gloves, hat, food & water. 

 

This was me at the start line Saturday just before 7:30am. 

 

Now back to spring marathon training 😃

I've always fancied doin one of them.. closest I've been is doin the Adrians wall walk over three days..  did it again a couple of moths back,, took my friends daughter along as she fancied doin it herself..  worst five days of my life....   did nothin but complain or bitch about her blisters..

 

But have seen seen many runs in the Lakes, I'm always jealous of em..   I wish I had the motivation to do one, its the training that would stump me though, no patience..    

 

Anyway, nine hrs, I salute you...   you're a better man than me.... well done..

 

A little treat fore you, I was watching loads of fell running vids this summer tryin to motivate myself to do one....

Fair play, there is something quite addictive to distance running, whether its the overall achievement when crossing the finish line, I'm not completely sure. I see you are near Manchester, I did the Manchester marathon this year. Amazing crowds!

 

Fell running does fascinate me. Maybe one day!

You bringing the M500 to the chip off Dan?

Oh, you wouldn't want me bringing my old beat up chipper and showing up all your shiny new ones.....

 

Then again, I'm up for it. We all learn something whatever happens, maybe I should be buying a new chipper because new ones are better? Definitely wouldn't be a proper chip-off without a JoBeau there.

What's the top speed on one of those 😛?

 

I ran a 46 mile ultra marathon in Wales last weekend, so there's plenty of power in the pushing haha.

It says 4km/h in the book, although I've never tried to time it over a distance.

Does anyone know if the diesel 18hp yanmar engine provides any benefit over the briggs and stratton 4 stroke? I have seen a TW 18/100 and for sale with the diesel engine.

Don’t know that much about chippers but yanmar engines will run forever if you don’t overheat them,and obviously service them. I’d go that way just for that reason
