As a training run, I decided to run the LDWA Daffodil Dawdle Trail Marathon as I had enjoyed the 51-mile Poppy line Ultra just a few weeks ago. The race started at 9 am for the runners with the walkers heading off an hour before from Stradbroke with a loop across fields and trails and little road.

The weather was good for Gary and I and with 3 checkpoints to check into and a couple of quick toilet stops we were very happy with our 4 42 clocking. Bang on target for our training plans for the Suffolk trail festival solo 24-hour endurance run and Angles Way 100 k. No bling here but we were well looked after with plenty of food at checkpoints although Gary and I kept going and lovely hot food at the end. A different sort of marathon but well worth a go if you fancy something a bit different.
