Round Sheffield Run
On a very hot day where strategy and endurance came to the fore, Fiona Alder and Andy Purll tackled the Round Sheffield run. The race consists of 11 timed stages over a 20km course with an additional 4km of “transit” stages where the athlete has limited time to make the start of the next stages. Sheffield is known for its hills and the race embraces the best of them, with long, cruel climbs and fast, treacherous descents. Fiona had never raced the distance before and ran strongly in her wave to finish in a very respectable 2hrs 8 mins. Andy, tackling the course for the 3rd time, was just outside his PB in a time of 1 hr 52 mins.
