Northants Ultra 2017 updated 12 June

Daryl Bentley has written up his race, and you can read his blog here.  Nick Ham has now posted his photos, so I’ve borrowed a couple for this report, and you can find the rest on Flickr here.


The race results are up on the race website here.  Norbert Mihalik (Northampton Road Runners) won by miles in 4:25:26, with Jon Taylor (Rugby & Northampton AC) nearly 20 minutes adrift in 4:44:33.  Rory Harris was 3rd in 4:47:03.  First woman was Melissa Arkinstall in 22nd position overall, in 5:48:01.  Helen Etherington (Wellingborough & District AC) finished next in 5:50:15, and 3rd woman, 31st overall, was Nicky Haynes (Alchester AC) in 5:59:53.

The Runfurther leaderboard has been updated, and you can find that here, as usual.  Not much has changed, as not many Runfurther regulars ran Northants this year.  Nick Ham and Bob Nash are both still on course for the Grand Slam of all 12 races.  I’ve put up Bob Nash’s report on his Fellsman run as well, and you can find that here.


Next race is the South Wales 50/100 on 23/24 June – good luck if you’re running it – I think you’ll need it!  Congratulations to Ken Sutor on his great 4th place in the Dragon’s Back Race – click on the link for the full results.
