Enigma Winter Run – 2 January 2012
Based at Caldecotte Lake at Milton Keynes. Enigma events are usually small field 40-60, and sell out incredibly quickly.
Check http://www.enigmarunning.co.uk/events.shtml for future events. Most of the participants are 100 marathon club regulars, on this occasion including a new world record holder, Traviss Wilcox. See http://www.golftoday.co.uk/news/yeartodate/2012_news/traviss_willcox_marathon_records.html. The route for this event was mostly tarmac paths or lightly gravelled surface. I would imagine this course surface would be good in any weather. It included a small loop, followed by 7 laps of Caldecotte Lake. The weather on the day was sunny and cold (6°C), but a biting south westerly wind, which made the long side of the lake very uncomfortable. There was one water stop, which was passed on each lap, where bottled water was available, and you could also leave your own food/drink at this stop. Next to the stop was a pub, with toilets.
My result: 48th place in 4:59:40, not the PB I was aiming for - shows how fickle the old legs can be. However, I won't grumble at a sub-5, nor a top 50th placing!
