Waterways 30 – 25 January 2020

Jono wrote “First place today at a slightly muddy waterways 30 miler (which is 32 miles!) but more importantly I’ve broke 4 hours for 50k for the first time 🙂 … and that’s a big marker in ultra world apparently 🙂

Now I just need a beard, a VW van and a craft ale collection and I’m ready for utmb champs!”

Craig wrote ” So in 12 months I’ve gone from running 5k to becoming an ultramarathon runner I’m over the moon 🙂 although today’s race was the hardest I’ve ever had to do 💪🏻 only about a mile of actual road, uneven surfaces boggy fields I think my actual time was about 5.30 hours but I’m just chuffed to finish ✅ hope you all had a great weekend it’s time for a beer 🍺 for me “

Results update 22 January 2020 – Essar 4 Villages Half and parkruns

Essar Four Villages Half Marathon

Not our finest runs, Kev struggled with injury and had to back off on the nice down hill bits which is the last thing you want when the last 2 miles are down hill. Martin did not want to race due to the most severe man flu, but unable to face wasting a race entry fee decided to have a go.

2 hours drive over the Snake Pass to somewhere near Wales (we almost ended up in Wales on the way home). It was cold, foggy, dry, no ice on the roads, no wind – good conditions really. Lots of queuing for toilets and bag drop. Not much time to warm up but that what the first mile is for.
