Lightning Run – 1 May 2016
Martin and Susan Hookway completed the lightning run as solo runners, that’s run as many 10k hilly off road loops as you can in 12 hours. Martin is a veteran ultra runner but Susan had only ever run a couple of road 10k races before and a lot of parkruns. Previously Susan has been support crew for Martin, but this time she proved she is an ultra runner.
Martin wrote “What a brilliant day. 12hrs of racing shared with some amazing friends. Not only did my awesome wife smash her distance PB with 60k (36miles) putting her in 20th place, I somehow managed 100k (62miles) landing me a PB, a Doncaster AC Club Record on the course & 9th position. I was lucky enough to share my 2nd to last lap with Sue then run over the finish line with Emmy & Lucy who had been amazing support crew all day. Sadly my planned crazy night of drinking has taken a back seat in favour of an early night lol. Next stop TR24 where we do the same but for 24hrs”
Well done to Visually Impaired runner Claire Bunting (guided by S
ally Wheelhouse) for running a PB, completing the race in 1:08:54 and finishing in 4641th place. Claire has written her running story, click here to read this.
