This is an LDWA event which welcomes well-behaved runners.  You can read more about it here

Paul Blundell writes, "Today I along with Tamatha Ryan (Romsey), Sue Sleath, Ian Hawker, Mike Page and Steve Bennett completed the punchbowl 30 which is an ldwa event.
According to the electronic route, it was nearer 32, the weather was cloudy sunshine but with a bitter NE wind.
Steve and Mike arrived at the start quite a bit before the rest of us so set of I reckon about 30 minutes ahead,in the belief that as they would be going slowly,then we would catch them up,sadly that never happened and I think they finished about 30 minutes ahead of us.
I did the punchbowl 20 last year and found that tough so I knew this wasn't going to be an easy run.
The area was very pretty though,the 3 checkpoints well stocked and we finished in around 6 hours and 40 minutes.
The run was sold out well in advance and as with all ldwa events was terrific value for ldwa members."

Hardley webmaster Jeremy Barber did the 20.  Walking with a friend, he took just a bit longer for the shorter distance.

Here are a few pictures from Paul.

Checkpoint 1

Checkpoint 2 which offered a full range of sandwiches, biscuits and hot and cold drinks

Recovery at the end.  As well as drinks and biscuits you could have thick soup and toast or beans on toast or both and all included in the race entry fee.
