Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th April – Highlander Mountain Marathon

Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th April – Highlander Mountain Marathon

Report from Sarah Fuller: “would you like some chips with that beer?” Not the normal question you expect to hear at the overnight camp of a mountain marathon. Normally overnight is a purely functional (eat noodles and try and sleep) and mostly unpleasant (hide from rain in tent about the size of a postage stamp) affair but not so for the highlander Mountain marathon.

Sunday 27th April – Fountains 10k

Sunday 27th April – SSAFA 10k Cartmel

Report from Kath Robertshaw: Jack and I recently tackled a 10k trail race in the grounds of Holker Hall near Grange over Sands.  We took part in this race last year and wanted to see what damage a year can do. A mainly flat course with a climb to the finish.  The only problem is the wind as the course drops down to the Morecambe Bay coast.  There were a lot more runners than last year mainly from two clubs…
