Marlborough Downs Challenge 2016


The Race

Runfurther went down to Marlborough again this year to take part in the Marlborough Downs Challenge on 15 May. 33 miles across chalk downs on a really well-designed route, varied underfoot with little tarmac. Marlborough Running Club organises the race, and did an excellent job of it too. Many thanks to Phil, Angus […]

Calderdale Hike 2016


I’ve now got the Calderdale Hike results, and they’re now included in the Runfurther leaderboard here. The race results are now up on the race website.

To everyone’s amazement there was a window of good weather just long enough for us all to have a good run. The slower runners and the walkers will […]

Early April 2016 news

Just a quick post between nose blows to wish everyone good luck at the Calderdale Hike on Saturday. You’ll be able to spot me by the coughing – I’m planning to go round slowly in the hope I won’t turn my cold into something worse in time for the Fellsman!

All the 2016 Runfurther races […]

Haworth Hobble 2016

Nick Ham at Purvs Corner, Haworth

The weather at the Hobble was pretty good this year, and I think most people really enjoyed themselves – I know I did. It was warm enough for shorts, there was little wind and no rain. It was still a bit muddy of course, but not nearly as bad as it could have been. […]

Early March 2016 news


Horrible weather in Cheshire today – let’s hope it clears up soon, as it’s only 10 days until the Haworth Hobble. Still, most of us don’t mind a bit of rain do we? Or wind? Or sleet?

I drove up to Kendal yesterday, & had a good run out with the dog along Cunswick […]

Please ask us for some so you can put them […]

Ultra Calendar Updated

I’ve finally found some time to update the Ultra Calendar, and the tab to click on has reappeared too – sorry it went missing during the website updates the other week. All the UK ultras we know about are on this calendar, apart from those who haven’t yet announced when their next date is. The […]

Apologies for the delay in getting this report up, but I’ve had to spend the last week doing urgent non-Runfurther things I’d had to put off while I was getting ready for the AGM & 2016 race launch. All photos were taken by Nick Ham: there are more on Nick’s Flickr site.

We had a […]
