Sponsors for the 2020 Series:












 

July 2020 news

Not much news to report, other than the Bullock Smithy has now been cancelled too. Runfurther will probably not reconvene in any meaningful sense until 2021. I hope you’re still all managing to get out though. A message from Karen:

Sadly we have had to accept that the Runfurther Ultra Champs series 2020 is void. […]

Calderdale Hike cancelled

The Calderdale Hike, which was to be on the 4th of April has now been CANCELLED. The next Runfurther race that still appears to be going ahead (for now anyway) is the Spire on the 9th of May (which is already full).

Haworth Hobble 2020

The Haworth Hobble went ahead as normal on Saturday. The next event is the Calderdale Hike on 4 April, and as far as I’m aware that’s still on too. The following race was to be the Fellsman on 25 April, and that has now been CANCELLED. I suspect we could see further cancellations as time […]

Pendle Way in a Day 2020

The Runfurther races got off to an early start this year, with 42 miles around Pendle. The weather was good to the runners – it could have been very different if the winter had hit! 48 finished the 42-mile route, and the race results are up on the race website. First to finish in 7:22:00 […]

2019 AGM and prizegiving: updated 3 Dec

Karen’s written up something about the AGM and prizegiving, as well as the race beforehand. The minutes of the AGM will have to wait until Dick has finished electioneering – he’s a bit busy. The photos here are Karen’s: you can find Nick’s photos on Flickr here, and his photos of the race beforehand are […]

The 2020 races

I’ve now updated the website for 2020, and here are the 2020 races, as announced at the AGM/prizegiving. The first race (Pendle Way in a Day) is showing as full on Sientries, but Karen says that if you email her, she can send you a code that should get you a place (karen at runfurther.com). […]

Membership list update

We’ve updated the online membership list (not before time), and also removed all runners who haven’t finished a Runfurther race since 2016 – apart from a few who have let us know they want to stay on the list. This is just to keep it easier for us to manage – if anyone wants to […]

Round Rotherham 50 2019 – updated 24 Oct with blog links

The race

And so we come to looking at the final Runfurther 2019 event – the Round Rotherham 50. A gruelling 50 miles round Rotherham in South Yorkshire, with complex routefinding, plenty of mud this year, and not many hills. Yet again it made for a brilliant climax to the Runfurther championship. Only Rory […]

Three Towers Ultra 2019
