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 […]

Early April 2016 news

Just a quick post between nose blows to wish everyone good luck at the Calderdale Hike on Saturday. You’ll be able to spot me by the coughing – I’m planning to go round slowly in the hope I won’t turn my cold into something worse in time for the Fellsman!

All the 2016 Runfurther races […]

Haworth Hobble 2016

Nick Ham at Purvs Corner, Haworth

The weather at the Hobble was pretty good this year, and I think most people really enjoyed themselves – I know I did. It was warm enough for shorts, there was little wind and no rain. It was still a bit muddy of course, but not nearly as bad as it could have been. […]

Horrible weather in Cheshire today – let’s hope it clears up soon, as it’s only 10 days until the Haworth Hobble. Still, most of us don’t mind a bit of rain do we? Or wind? Or sleet?

I drove up to Kendal yesterday, & had a good run out with the dog along Cunswick […]
