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 […]

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 […]

Lakes Mountain 42 2018 – updated 6 April

Ponies at Askham

Many thanks to Joe Faulkner and his team for putting the Lakes Mountain 42 on, despite the conditions. The race was shortened to about 26 miles due to the snow/ice conditions, but it will still count as a Runfurther “Medium” race. For a full race report, see Nick Ham’s write-up below.
