‘Am I the only per­son who once got lost run­ning along a canal?’ – Lou Drinkald ‘Found my­self run­ning third in a triathlon – when I ac­ci­den­tally joined the race. The crowd was con­fused when I went straight and the real rac­ers turned.’ – Steve Or­ton ‘Tail run­ning at Cop­pett Hill fell race. Got left be­hind, got lost and ended up jump­ing in the River Wye to get to the other side to meet my hus­band. A nice man in a ca­noe held my phone while I swam across.’ – Jane van Soest-smith ‘Cap­pado­cia Ul­tra Trail. Took a wrong turn with less than a mile to go. Got re­ally lost and ended up with a DNF at mile 80 of a 74-mile ul­tra.’ – Lee Shan­non ‘Run­ning up a road on GPS that wasn’t a road – and straight into a paint­ball game that was just start­ing.’ – Stephen Bir­kett ‘Dark Skies Marathon 2016. The or­gan­iser said no-one had ever got lost: all you need to do is keep the big­gest man-made lake in Europe on your right. I got lost.’ – Ge­orge Stainsby
