    Cotswold Way Challenge: Saturday/Sunday 5th/6th April: 57 miles run over 2 days!

    London Marathon: Sunday 13th April

    The Pilgrim Challenge North Downs Way Ultra: 1st/2nd February: 66 miles run over 2 days

    Helen Josey: won her age category, and a "fab down jacket!" 

    The Rough and Tumble: 12th January
    On a day refreshingly dry for a change after all the recent rain, Mandy and Geoff recently took part in the challenging ‘Rough and Tumble’ cross country race held over 10.1 miles at Milton Lilbourne near Pewsey. The course, however, was far from dry! Within a few yards of the start the runners had to negotiate about 400 metres of severely flooded road that led up to the hills and valleys of the Pewsey Downs. The field soon strung out and tackled the mud and water, footpaths, tracks and open countryside. The early morning brightness soon faded, and low cloud prevented the prospect of far-reaching views from the top of two steep climbs. Nevertheless, Mandy and Geoff enjoyed the challenges of the race, and were pleased with their results.

    Mandy finished 211th in a very creditable time of 1 hour 43 minutes 33 seconds; Geoff finished 76th in a time of 1 hour 28 minutes 12 seconds, and claimed the 1st Over 60 age group prize.

    The cakes, of course, (for anyone who has run this event before) are part of the whole Rough and Tumble experience, so Mandy wisely got her supply well before the start in order not to miss out!!

      ...... and here's a lovely note from Mel, who wrote to Mandy after her great effort..

      Hi Mandy,

      Hope you had a good run yesterday! My time was 2:25:19. Not the fastest, but I'm really chuffed considering I walked for at least 2 minutes of every mile for the second half.  First half, no problem, was keeping up with the 2:15 marker - loved running through the university where I work as my husband, kids and colleagues were there. Other highlights include the really loud band in the IDR underpass next to the Oracle, high-fiving every child I could, collecting chocolate buttons from a toddler, and running along the road that the residents had drawn on in chalk (mile 9-10?) - I was halfway over the hopscotch before I realised and started to hopscotch (to a cheer). Low light definitely was not figuring out how to run and drink at the same time before running - or indeed during. My marathon photos are hilarious - one was in mile 11-12 I think, and I was definitely having a gruelling time. The other is in the stadium, doing a mega sprint with a massive smile on.
