Well organised event with plenty of feed stations.  In 2015 it was hot and many folk suffered with cramp and nausea, particularly when approaching the Grasmere check point at the hottest part of the day.  The checkpoints tended to run out of food for slower runners and later on the coke energy drink became diet coke.  Great T shirts. Presentation was in the middle of the next day which was a bit late really.  Expensive but great event and I plan top do it again.

Mostly well marked, although the markings did peter out in places. Suitable for those new to ultradistance. 

Also it is a bit longer than 55Km :-)
