Round Rotherham 2016


The Race

Well, I wasn’t there. I’m down with a cold & decided I’d better not run. I went over to Rotherham for a Runfurther committee meeting on Friday evening at the Staithes, but then I came home again – I’ve been in no state to run 50 miles. Plenty of others were though, […]

High Peak 40 2016, & AGM/prizegiving news

Before covering the High Peak 40, I just need to tell you that we’ve now booked a venue for this year’s AGM and prizegiving – please be there if you possibly can. We’ll be announcing next year’s races, providing sandwiches and chips, and there may even be cake and spot prizes. There usually […]

10 Peaks Brecon Beacons 2016


Well done to everyone who ran the Brecon Beacons race. I wasn’t there, so I can’t tell you much about it. Karen was though, and she’s written up her blog. The photos here are hers, and Karen’s blog is here.

First home was David Chetta (Mercia FR) in 12:27:25, 2nd was Jonathan Williams in […]

Race summary

Well that was hot wasn’t it? I’ve run a few Long Tours, but I think this was the hottest I’ve done, and I found it very hard going. I wasn’t the only one to suffer though – there were far more DNFs than the two […]

St Cuthbert’s Way Ultra 2016 (& other stuff!)

This will have to be a quick & brief post, as I’m running out of time before I go away for a couple of weeks. The St Cuthbert’s Way Ultra was as stunning as we expected, although personally I can only speak for the first half, as I was at the point of collapse by […]

Pennine 39 2016


Race Summary

This turned out to be a brilliant event – many thanks to Joe and the rest of the NAV4 team for putting it on. We had good weather, ideal conditions underfoot, and Alston Youth Hostel made a great base. Numbers were limited, but we’d expect quite a few more runners to take part […]

Northants Ultra 2016



Race results

It always seems to be a sunny summer’s day when we finish the Northants Ultra, and this year was another where we could sit around on the grass at the end, gradually recovering and clapping in the finishers. There was a mist all morning, keeping the temperature reasonable until the sun […]

Late May 2016 news

Not much news to pass on, but we are starting to talk about which races to include in next year’s Championship. We may even include a 100-mile race again! It’s the Northants Ultra this Sunday, and we’ll be there hoping for good weather yet again. If you’re still wondering what to do on 18 June, […]

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 […]
