Friday 24th June – ULTRArace 100 miler

chrisc_ultra100_2011OAC’s Chris Carver texts in about this circular race betwixt Stratford-Upon-Avon and Cirencester:

“Hi, I finished first by 55 minutes but was disqualified for accidentally taking a wrong turn and only running 99.5 miles.

The course record is 18 hours 38 minutes and my time was 17 hours 43 minutes.

The race started at noon and it rained solidly from 5pm to 4am and in those conditions, at night, on unlit country lanes, navigating with photocopied maps and a headtorch, it is easy to miss a direction sticker the size of a mobile stuck to a lamppost or road sign.

Only me to blame though”.
