what matters is that you give it your best effort. as for placing 53rd vs 46th - no one really cares; so the length of the climb is mostly irrelevant ;)

That's very De Coubertin, but actually I do care and I'd rather kick some butt, rather than being kicked, at least in my age group...  ;D

As far as I’m aware there are ( except youngsters) only two groups, Senior and Vet (40+) in the Nationals

Medals are awarded by age group 40-44. 45-49, 50-54 and so on... must be a relatively new thing, but it's clear on the CTT website and confirmed by the organiser...

Not that I have medal ambitions...

I stand corrected. I think it must be fairly new.

It's a nice touch, otherwise once you are past your best years, you are just there to make up the numbers, which is a bit sad and demotivating...
