Mortimer Forest Trail 25/03/18

Ludlow Runners kindly gave Deb & Myself free entry to this race after I took photos last year but as Deb wasn’t feeling 100% I ran this one and Deb took along a camera this time!

This was an interesting “race” – more of a “undulating” trail with around 1800 feet of elevation across 9 miles (some bits were vertical I think!) but I had a brilliant time – really enjoyed it – this was a proper trail run by a very organised club. I hope to do it again next year (it’s usually held in December so hopefully this will be one I will run twice in 2018).

Millennium Way Ultra 18/03/2018

This wasn’t an intentional shoot but as I was running the Millennium Way Ultra, Deb took a camera and got some awesome shots in some horrendous -6 wind-chill after the return of the Beast from the East! We’ve put the photos onto Flickr and the facebook page anyway for the runners to enjoy (who did an incredible job in those conditions).

I had to pull out after 7 hours completing just over 31 miles as I was suffering from the cold and my legs had packed in but it was an amazing course – just up against the weather! I’ve decided to go back and do the course in reverse on the 28th April (the Millennium Way Back) where hopefully I’ll complete the full distance (Deb will be taking photographs again) 🙂
