Weekend Race Results

29 July 2018 - By Steve Hennings

Well it was a weekend for the loony fringe of Witham RC with 2 members taking on Ultras.

Lakeland 50, The Lakes – Sat 28th

As the weather changed to cool, windy & wet conditions James set off in fancy-dress as the character Kenny from Southparks. The outfit didn’t slow him down however and he scaled the 11 Lakeland Peaks to arrive in Coniston in a time of 11h 54m 44s finishing 173rd out of the 756 finishers. 69 others dropped out!!

Something Wild Ultra, Dartmoor – Sun 29th

Meanwhile down on Dartmoor Matt Jordan was preparing to take on the 50k ultra event as part of a weekend running festival. The event had to be cut short due to to the heavy rain and a dangerous river crossing with Matt covering only 39.82km in 4h28m and rightly feeling a bit short changed!!
