A week ago I took part in the Machen Mountain 10k! What a hard race that was, compounded by the hot sunshine of a bank holiday afternoon! Nevertheless, at the end I really enjoyed it and vowed to take part in more trail races in future. I finished in 52:35. Have to add that it was a very well organised and marshalled event with a very picturesque (if painful) route. Even the downhill bits were killers on the old legs.
