On Saturday Edward Casebourne walked the 27 mile Golden Fleece near Hull. He completed the walk in 9h12, slightly slower than his usual pace due to lots of mud, and some confusion over the directions which caused him to walk an extra mile! He also paused longer than usual at the checkpoints to sample the delicious home-cooked food. Cheryl Kempster opted for the shorter 15 mile route, which she completed in 4h50, as she was keen to get back to the hotel spa!
On Sunday three club members enjoyed the muddy but well organised Longhorn events at Thoresby Park. Madaleine Combie ran the 5k in 34:47, Annette Taylor ran the 10k in 1h01 and came first in her age category, and Kira Green ran the half marathon in 3h09.
Meanwhile Adam Holland was in Paris for the Fitbit Semi de Paris half marathon, which he flew round in 1:18:57 to finish in 210th place out of around 37,000. Fantastic result, especially as he cycled to the start…from London!
