Well done to Garry Barnes and Al Harris on completing this 20-mile race, with it being Al’s first 20-mile race. Thanks to Garry Barnes for the following report: Organised by “the race organiser” this event includes a 10km and 10 mile option along with the 20 mile 4 lap race Warm conditions and a welcome breeze in places made for nice conditions although very tough psychologically being a lap event and going past the 19 mile board 4 times until it actually means only 1 mile to go does tend to grate a little.
Well done to Victoria O’Brien on completing this 20 mile race as part of her preparation for London next month. In her own words:
Managed the 20 miles in 3:22, only 2 mins over my target 🙂 Did an “Ian” though and went off way too fast making the 2nd half hellish 👿 One to learn from….
5 Sphinx runners braved the elements to complete the Round the Lakes 20 mile race.
Congratulations to James Abrams on his first 20-mile race:
my first 20mile race in which the organisers described as frequently hilly!and boy it was especially at mile 9,after checking my strava segments.that hill was just short of a mile I think and maxed out at 6.6%!but a good challenge with a time of 2hour 35min 15sec
Thanks to Steve Court for the following report:
7 Sphinxes ran this tough 20 miler in good weather. Course very undulating, not easy but 20 miles done
There was also plenty of other reports – the following from Lisa:
Oakley 20 miler done and dusted in 3 hours and 13 mins. Last 3 miles were absolute torture. Nearly started crying at mile 17, laughed hysterically at something unfunny at mile 18 and contemplated throwing myself under a truck at 19. Somehow managed to finish after almost taking a wrong turn a 19 and a half. Hanging up my long distance laces. Not even a medal for my efforts but nice hoodie. Enjoyable day with the team!
Whoo hoo Oakley 20 done! Would love to say that was easy but I’d probably be struck with lightening lol
Oakley 20 kicked my ***!
