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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
