The Race

This was my second time running in this race, and I recommended it to the rest of the committee for inclusion in the Championship this year. It didn’t disappoint – this was a tremendous event. The race results are up on the SI website here, and I’ve updated the Runfurther leaderboard. Runfurther committee […]

Three Rings of Shap 2015

053

This is a hard event to finish – no bones about it. Conditions on Saturday were just about ideal for runners: there was a bit of a haze all day to take the edge off the hot weather of the previous couple of days, and the predicted rain never happened. T-shorts and shorts until dusk, […]

Early June 2015 news

A few items of news to report, as I get ready to head up to Shap for Saturday’s Three Rings of Shap:

1. We’ve placed an order for snazzy Giraffe Headwear (we’re not allowed to call them buffs as that’s a registered name). Every runner who runs 4 counters this year will get one of […]

The Ox Ultra 2015 – updated

Ox 27 Miles.4

About 600 runners gathered at the weekend on the Rushmore Estate in the Wiltshire countryside for a series of four races. The location is in a huge estate park, with ideal camping fields, and the Saturday afternoon and evening were warm and sunny. If anything a bit too hot for running, but the forecast for […]

Apocalypse 100

This website isn’t my personal blog, but we’re always interested in ultras any member’s been running, and we’re happy to post any race reports. This one’s from me! It was written in a great hurry, so apologies for the typos. Nigel Aston’s written up his race too, and his has got some photos in it. […]

Marlborough Downs 2015

I couldn’t make it to the Marlborough Downs Challenge as I was too busy organising my own Ultra the same weekend. Karen Nash’s race report is below, and Nick’s photos are on Flickr here. Henry Morris has written an account on his blog and that’s here, but beware the gory photo of his megablister! The […]

Early May News

The final Runfurther race of 2015 is now open for entries: the Jedburgh Three Peaks Ultra on 24 October. I’d suggest you get your entry in asap, as they’ve had 79 entries in the first 3 days since opening. It’s great scenery and a very runnable route, and it’ll be a really good day. We’ll […]

The Fellsman 2015 (updated again)

16669405344_14b00af625_o

Well the Fellsman weather god struck again on Saturday. After a week with the weather forecast changing radically about twice a day, we really didn’t know how it would turn out. We were pretty sure it was going to turn cold though: the one thing all the forecasts agreed on was that the hot sunny […]

Mid April News

A few bits and pieces for you, in the run-up to Saturday’s Fellsman. Good luck to everyone who’s running; we’ll see you there.

Nigel Aston has sent us a write-up of his unsupported 100-mile run at Easter: the Leicestershire Round. This is a 100-mile waymarked long distance path close to his home. He got round […]

Calderdale Hike 2015 (updated)

Nick CH 2015 01

I’ve now added the Calderdale Hike results to the Runfurther leaderboard (with a couple of corrections made a few days later), and put the team results up too. Nick Ham’s photos can be found here. Karen went off to Scotland to bag Munros straight from the race, but she sent a race report when […]
