Grand Tour of Skiddaw 2018

The preamble

Apologies for the delay in posting these results. While you were running the Grand Tour of Skiddaw I was walking the Across Wales Walk, which is about the same distance, 45 miles from the Welsh/English border near Clun in Shropshire to the coast near Aberystwyth. The next day I drove up to […]

Skiddaw results up Friday 7th I hope!

Just a quick post to apologise in advance as there’ll be a delay before I can post anything about the Grand Tour of Skiddaw (Saturday 1 September). I’ll be walking 45 miles across Wales on Saturday then heading straight up to the Highlands to do some walking guidebook work & won’t be home until Thursday […]

Pennine 39 2018

It was another hot one! A great little race, this one. Last year’s Runfurther champions, Ken Sutor and Karen Nash, were first man and first woman to finish, doing their prospects of another championship this year no harm at all. Ken’s time was 5:23:44, with Rory Harris 5 minutes behind him in 5:28:41. I […]

Tent Meals – new sponsor, 25% off

Tent Meals are sponsoring the remainder of Runfurther 2018, so there’ll be food handed out! Many thanks to them. Tent Meals produce dried lightweight meals for backpacking & mountain marathons. Karen says they’re giving 25% discount to Runfurther members too (code RunFurther25).

South Wales 50/100 2018 – updated 27 June

Well the weather was hot, & it’s just been getting hotter ever since. The race results are up on the Run Walk Crawl website. There were 26 finishers in the 100, and 34 in the 50. Matt Tomlinson won the 100 in 23:28:20, just beating Karen Nash by a whisker. OK, he beat her […]

Northants Ultra 2018 updated 5 June

The results are up on the Go Beyond website. Despite what must have been a very hot day, Andrew Siggers of Kenilworth Runners lowered the race record by 13 minutes, finishing in the amazing time of 3:59:29. That meant Runfurther points were hard to come by for the handful of male members who ventured down […]

Marlborough Downs Challenge 2018 – updated 10 May

There were 90 finishers in the long race this year, in pretty warm weather – there were a few people who needed to retire due to the heat. It looks like there was a race to the line for the first two finishers, who put in very fast times. Edward Knudsen (Avon Valley Runners) finished […]
