Thanks to Ian Cunningham for the following race report:
Just to let you know that I completed 80km(50 miles) at Trail Attack 24.The event was in the Heart of England forest and was 10K laps all off road and on trails.The object to do as may 10k laps as possible in 24 hours.The winner did an amazing 170k and to put that in perspective the second and third runners only managed 130KThe course was very hilly for the first 7k with the last 3k zig zagging through one field with the camp site in site less than a few hundred metres away and the ground was very dry and rutted not ideal for running on and you had to watch your step all the times.
Imran Ali and Ian Cunningham completed this ultra marathon with ultra elevation!
Imran Ali and Ian Cunningham completed this off-road half-marathon through the Peak District, starting and finishing at Bakewell.
Thanks to Mitch for the following report:
Four of us (Andy Mac, Eggman, Jax and me) made the 70 mile trip to the village of Caythorpe in Lincolnshire for an ‘off-road’ half-marathon over the ‘flat’ countryside. An awful day for running with temperatures around 2 degrees, constant drizzle and a bitterly cold easterly wind, from which there was very little protection as we crossed the open fields. The course itself had everything, tracks and trails through copses, ploughed muddy fields, stiles, kissing gates, a stretch right through a church graveyard and probably 3 miles or so on road. We also encountered possibly the only hill in the whole of Lincolnshire, from the top of which we could just about see the Eiffel Tower in the distance! We were encouraged to enter as a team at £10 a head, 2 males and 2 females, with the luscious Steve Colbourne passing as the second woman in our quartet! The entire event was organised by the villagers for the villagers with the locals providing the marshalls and preparing the food at the end with all proceeds going to Caythorpe itself . This was the ‘Winter Woodhouse Eaves’ with a veritable feast at the end – homemade soup (three choices), loads of sandwiches, and, for dessert, a choice of homemade apple pie or jam sponge, both with custard (with no limits, so a certain farmer took full advantage!) and free tea and coffee for all. Pity about the weather and conditions, but still an excellent event.
Helen King and Laura Pibworth-Dolinski completed this trail half-marathon around the Shropshire hills.
Barry and Rachael Allen completed this trail marathon, set in the beautiful Gordano Valley near Bristol – taking in coastal paths, woodland and many beautiful views. Well done to both.
Well done to Katie Timms and Tom Padgett on their longest run yet, accompanied by Jackie Timms, with Mitch Timms having to assume the role of spectator (get well soon, Mitch!).
Trailffest is described as:
With the start up in the mountains at 710 feet elevation and the finish down by the sea, it may sound easy – but don’t be fooled! There are some very steep and challenging climbs along the way.
