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.

Ultra Calendar update

I’ve finally found the time to update the Ultra Calendar – it’s a lot of work each time searching so many websites. All the UK and Ireland Ultras I could fine are in there, with a bit of info and a link to the race website. Please check it out, & let me know if […]

Merry Xmas & a Happy New Year – updated 8 Jan

I’ve updated the website for 2018 – let me know if you spot anything that doesn’t look right. Not sure whether I’ll get the Ultra Calendar updated though – it’s a lot of work but at least I’ve started on it this week. The rest is done though, apart from updating the membership list. That’ll […]

The 2018 races

At the AGM the 2018 races were announced. I’ll be updating the website properly soon, but in the meantime here’s the list of races. They have all featured in Runfurther in previous years, so for now I’ve linked them to the web pages we’ve already got for them. Those pages tell you something about the […]

White Rose 30 2017 & the Prizegiving/AGM (updated 11 Nov)

The weather was dry, and the race was fast. It was hilly, but with a fair bit of tarmac, and much of the rest on good tracks, it was very runnable. I spent the morning sorting out the Jedburgh results, & didn’t get to Marsden until the first few runners had already […]
