Well that was hard and unfortunately I didn't make the finish :sad: I was struggling with sleep deprivation big style after my off (the hospital wouldn't let me go to sleep as I had a head injury :wacko: ) and eventually decided that as I was out of time discretion was the better part of valour and packed at Letterkenny . I will try and sort a ride report after more sleep .

Came home yesterday via Scotland as I arrived at the Liverpool check-in 10 minutes after it closed and as they had cancelled the evening ferry it was either wait 24 hours or jump on the hi speed to Cairnryan and get a train home from Ayre.

Train! You didn't ride home then?

And having tracked all at some stage, number 8 included, I think you can move yourself up that leaderboard by a few places.

Email from the organisers last night informing riders that the event is cancelled. Understandable in the current climate the plan now is to run it in 2021 .
Like you say, understandable, but having built yourself up...

Hope you can take part next year. Those who'd managed to get a place for this years event should have first say.

One of the GCN guys rode the Donegal 555, managed 450km in (I think) just under 24 hours, although he's a racer by trade so used to going fast and I think he said his longest ever ride previously was 7 hours.

How does this route compare to the typical 400/600 Audax? Lots of climbing or is this about the going rate? https://www.donegalultra555.com/the-route/

About average for 'climb per 100k'. Some 600s are flat(ter): some are hilly(er). The Wales end-to-end has about 8000m of climb (as measured using AudaxUK calculations and the Kernow and SW 600 had 8800m. There's a 600 up and back in eastern England which has less than 4000m (I think).
Going rate.
