Wooler Trail Marathon

Joe Lofthouse travelled to Northumberland for the second consecutive year to tackle to Wooler Trail Marathon. Like all off road courses, the actual distance covered is more than 26.2 miles, this event managing over 28 miles with plenty of steep ascents. Joe finished in a great time of 5 hours 28 minutes.

Holly Hustle

Jo and Iain Wallace travelled to north Leeds for the new trail race in the Meanwood Valley. The course was a virtually all off-road hilly, mucky and technical route with plenty of rocks, tree routes and sharp ups and downs, mainly in woodland. Although marked, they were given a map as the markers tend to disappear, and this was the case as Iain went wrong 3 times, losing a fair bit of time, while Jo was fortunate only to take one wrong turning. Runners could do one lap of 11 km or 2 laps for a total of 22km. Jo & Iain went for the 11km option and out of 142 finishers, Iain was 26th in 1:02 and Jo was 31st in 1:03 and 12th lady out of 85.
