Sevenoaks Circular

Results Index

Andy reports: "I ran the Sevenoaks Circular today, an official 30.4 mile run around Sevenoaks, organised by the Kent LDWA. Having done it for the last three years, I was confident that I knew my way around the clockwise course and could easily follow the route narrative. Unfortunately they reverted to the anti-clockwise route from the late 80s and early 90s, so that plan went out the window after a quarter of a mile!

It proved to be a great route, fields, woods and villages, mostly off-road, but with reasonable long road sections. Some cracking views and magnificent houses along the way. The route narrative was mostly excellent, but in some of the woodland sections, I did need to get the compass out to check my bearings.

Unusually for the LDWA there was a mass start at 8am, in very cold conditions. I was shivering, as I dressed for the weather forecast of warm temperature, clear skies and lots of sun. However it soon warmed up and sunglasses were the order of the day.

This was a seriously hilly course, full of gates and stiles, meaning that I never got into any real rhythm. I ran some parts well, but really struggled from 20 miles to 26 miles on a section of relentless hills. I managed to get going again to the finish, but overall this was not a good day in the office!

It was not the type of run that I wanted to clock up my 150th marathon and ultra, but I still achieved a good long ‘time-on-my-feet’ run. I finished in six hours and six minutes, a disappointing time in some ways, but not a course designed for me to really do well on. And I managed to run 31.76 miles, maybe adding 0.26 myself, but it was definitely a long way over the stated distance."

Eco Trail de Paris

Results Index

Mel reports: "I arrived in Paris on Friday, spent the afternoon sightseeing, registering and planning how to get to the start. It was a great atmosphere at the registration which was opposite the Eiffel tour. I looked up to see just how far it was to reach the first floor by the steps as this was what I had to do at the end of the race. It looked like a lot of steps!

A 45 min train journey got me to where we had to get on buses to reach the Regional de Loisers of Saint-Quentin en Yvelines, I wasn't sure what this place was. When I arrived it was a beautiful park which had a circus there, it was quite strange seeing lions, llamas etc before the start and there was a cow with the biggest horns I have ever seen. The only clowns were all the runners waiting to get running in the sorching heat. The race started at 12 slap bang in the middle of the hottest part of the day. All the announcements of course were in French, there did seem to be a lot of them though so we started about 5 past 12.

We followed the uneven garssy track to reach a gravel path, which twisted its way through lovely forest and parklands. I reached the first checkpoint at 13 miles, I had drunk all my 2 litres of water as it was so hot and the course up to this point had lots of severe climbs. I filled up my hydro pac, scoffed a few bits of food and carried on. I was feeling really hot, so made sure I was keeping myself hydrated. I ran out of water at 18 miles, this was a disaster as I knew the next checkpoint was at 45k so about 27 miles I worked out. I had to go 9 miles with no water, doesn't sound too bad, but the heat and the climbs were taking their toll. I started to get a sore head, sore stomach and was feeling really really dizzy.

There were runners dropping like flies, lying by the side of the course. I looked at one man, who had passed out on a hill, he looked a very funny colour I was convinced he was not breathing. I couldn't ask anyone as they didn't teach me in French at school how to say is he dead. I decided to walk quickly with a few mins of running to get to the next checkpoint and see how I felt, I have never in any of my runs felt as bad as I did. I was seriously dehydated, my wee was bright bright orange and it hurt a lot to go. I was kicking myself for not taking more water, but normally 4 litres would be more than enough for the whole 50 miles and there would be more checkpoints.

Eventually I arrived at the checkpoint it was actually 28.6 miles, I was so glad to see it. I filled up my pac again, ate some more food and also carried another litre bottle of water all of which I drank within the next mile. I started to feel better and was able to start running again. The hills did not let up though it seemed every time I turned a corner I would be faced with another unrunable steep climb. One man said something to me, to which I replied I am sorry I only speak English, He replied ah no problem I lived in Coventry for 5 years my English is good. I chatted to him whilst climbing the hill, this helped forget how hard the hill was. He asked why are you here running this race, at that time I was asking myself that too.

The course continued to follow trail paths through woods and past lakes - it was beautiful. I was feeling 100 times better on reaching the third and final checkpoint so yes only 3 checkpoints in 50 miles, well there was one other which had only water. The third checkpoint was like an oasis, music was blaring, food was plentiful, there was soup, cheese, bread, salami, coke, water. I scoffed again put on my headtorch as it was now dark, and carried on. I had about 9 miles to go.

On leaving here the view over Paris was absolutely gorgeous, I could see the rotating beam of the Eiffel tower, that is where I am going I thought. A welcome dowhill section came next and I was able to pass lots of people here. The last 6 miles we followed along the side of Seine, the finish being the Eiffel tower looked so close but it took forever to reach it, we had to cross so many bridges, up several sets of steps, winding through narrow paths, crossing from one side of the river to the other. On crossing one bridge the Eiffel tower was on my right hand side as I turned onto the path facing it, it lit up with sparkling lights, it seemed like it was for me. The French around me were shouting ahh c'est bon!! It was an amazing sight. I later learned that although the tower is always lit at night, on every hour they switch on the sparkly lights. I climbed the last set of steps to reach the road, the marshalls stopped the traffic to let me cross, I crossed to reach the base of the tower, there was a huge screen wth a ramp in front, you ran over the ramp, to the east side and was met there by another marshall who handed you a lift pass to get back down and patted me on the back.

The last bit to climb up the steps, wow there was a lot of steps. On reaching the first floor, I was greeted with a huge applause, bright lights and shouts of something in French. My finishing time was 11 hours 15 mins, long time for 50 miles but at one point I didnt think I would finish, then I thought I would just finish within the cut off of 13 hours. I found this race one of the hardest that I have done, but I will never forget climbing those steps of the Eiffel tower it was amazing. I was disappointed not to have been given a medal, only a t-shirt. It is a nice t-shirt though. There was beer and coke at the end as much as you wanted. I then joined to queue for the lift back down, there was no way I was taking the stairs."

Daffodil Dawdle

Results Index

Andy reports: "I ran the 26.3 miles Daffodil Dawdle today, near Newmarket in Suffolk. Unlike last week, I followed the route narrative correctly and stayed on right course all the way. Really good conditions under foot, on a nice course without any significant hills, so not bad for running, if a little breezy and chilly. This is a typically well organised and brilliant value event organised by the Norfolk & Suffolk LDWA. £5 gets you coffee and biscuit before the start, three excellently stocked checkpoints (the range of cakes at the third one was worthy of particular mention) and a hot meal and pudding at the finish. Oh, and you get a certificate as well. But, despite the name, there was no sign of any daffodils on the course!

I went off a little too quickly and so slowed a bit in the last four miles, but I was delighted to finish in 4:24, as I was aiming for 4:45. Pretty uneventful apart from stepping into a pothole at about six miles, which did something to my right calf. About a mile later I pulled up feeling like I had been shot in the calf. As usual, I carried on and ran it off in a few miles. No problems until after the finish when it started to cause me real issues. Walking is not too much fun at present, which is a pity, as otherwise I have no stiffness!

This was my 149th Marathon or Ultra, 150 was planned for the Sevenoaks Circular next week, which must be doubtful at the moment?"

New Forest 50k

Results Index  Full Results

Mike reports: "It was a 50k race in the New Forest - part of the New Forest Festival of Running which included a 10k, 10 mile, 20 mile, half marathon and 50k and 100k ultra distances.

It was only my second attempt at an ultra but I had a reasonably successful run (apart from a dodgy couple of miles towards the end) and ended up coming 2nd in 4h 45 - admittedly out of a field of only 12 runners! Despite the unusually hot weather I think I managed my pace much better this time round....I just need to improve on my race fuel and hydration which are still poor to be honest.

I'm going to aim for a 40 miler next in early April. I need to try and build up to 70 miles for the Hadrians Wall ultra in June."

New Forest Marathon

Results Index

Andy reports: "The Bog from Hell!

Ruth accepted my offer of running the New Forest Marathon today; an off-road 26 mile walk/run organised by the Wessex LDWA from the village of Burley in the heart of the New Forest National Park. The idea was for a gentle ‘time on our feet’ run. The course goes over some gentle hills, through the forest, across plains and along ridges. Some lovely scenery, huge houses, great views with New Forest ponies, cattle and deer a-plenty. Some muddy sections and a few brooks to leap across. We ran for about a mile in the opposite direction to the runners in the New Forest Ultra that Mike Mason was in, but we did not see him.

The seven checkpoints were only given by grid references, so you have to find your way by map reading. Four were unmanned and you had to note a number from a post, but the other three were well stocked with food and drink. Ruth trusted in my map-reading abilities – oh dear! However, I was not the only one, three 100 Marathon Club members were clearly well off-route at various times.

All went well until about a mile and a half from the finish, when I missed a faint side path, compounded by missing the next side track as we moved back on to the route. We caught up with another runner and agreed where we were, but we weren’t there. So we entered a field that Ruth described as “the bog from hell”. Not a bad way of putting, it was wet, very wet! Once we got to the top, some compass work pointed us in the right direction. Easy to get back on the road from there, but it did add some extra distance, making it a ‘gentle over-distance’ run for Ruth.

We finished our 28.8 mile, 26-miler in five hours and fifty-five minutes. Ruth ran strongly and finished well, so not all was lost. Nice certificate, food and drink at the finish. Sorry Ruth!"

Thanet 20

Results Index  Full Results

Nigel reports: "I went down to Ramsgate to do the Thanet 20 with the aim of getting in some quality miles as marathon training. The troublesome mid week calf pains seemed to have cleared up but as the course passes the HQ at the 10 mile point there was a bail out option just in case.

The course is quite scenic although probably better when less windy and wet. It was mostly coastal paths with a couple of busy pedestrian sections through Ramsgate and Broadstairs. My ambitious plans to aim for 2.40 went out the window early on but I was quite pleased to pick up the pace in the more difficult second half and finish in 210th place in a time of 2hrs 51mins 34secs. At least the marathon training is back on schedule!"

Steyning Stinger

Results Index

Steve reports: "I did the Steyning Stinger today on the South Downs. There was torrential rain which made the surfaces extremely muddy and dangerous, even with trail shoes. The freezing wind did not help much either. The conditions were probably worse than 3 or 4 years back when Rob was due to do his 300th there. The hills had to be walked both up and down due to the very slippery conditions. Unlike many runners, I managed to stay on my feet! I finished in a course worst of 4 hours 44 mins!"

Croydon Harriers Inter-Club XC

Results Index  Full Results

Official results 04/03/12.

First a change of venue from Lloyd Park to some playing fields up the road, then a change back, but with a change of course. Instead of the usual 3 lap 10k, it was to be a 4 lap, 4 miler, that actually ended up as more like 3.7 miles. All this was due to a clash of use with a Disc Golf championship and permission from the council to use only a small section of the park.

Collingwood teams were 4th and 10th.

Banstead Woods 5k parkrun

Results Index  Full Results

Congratulations to Andy Stalley on his 200th parkrun, with 26 other Collingwoods along to help him celebrate. Well done on new bests for Pauls Booth and Cooper and Dave Condon. And welcome to new members Ria and Melvin Trundley.

"It was brilliant to see so many Collingwood vests out this morning at the Banstead Woods parkrun; we were so visible as a club and drew such a lot of positive attention. That is something that I have been hearing for ages down the Woods and at other events too, we have gained a great reputation as a friendly, open and welcoming club. Congratulations to you all for achieving that.

I would like to thank everyone who ran this morning with me at my 200th Banstead Woods event, and also to those who volunteered or watched, it was great to have you all there. It was also lovely to get many e-mails of support from those that could not make it, which just shows the type of club we are. Obviously, this was a big milestone event for me, being only the second person to complete a double century at Banstead; it actually equates to 1000 kilometres of racing in the woods!
It was also great to see The Mint packed out as well afterwards; you clearly enjoyed the cakes as they all went. Collingwood has grown as a club recently, in so many ways, not just in membership. The spirit and friendship at the moment is truly special; today just proves that so much. Thank you.
Thanks,
Andy

Roger currently leads the men's points table, with Robert in 2nd. Jenny leads the ladies table.

Surrey Men's League XC - Fixture 4 - Lloyd Park

Results Index  Full Results (corrected)

Promotion!

A splendid finish to the season, winning the final fixture in style, consolidating our 2nd place and gaining promotion to Division 3 for next season. It was a great turn-out of runners and supporters at Lloyd Park. If there had been a competition for largest and most vociferous support I think we would have won that as well. A big thank you to all who ran and braved the cold to cheer on the team.

Match Points: Collingwood 161, Woking 240.5, Holland 257

Final Points: Woking 757.5, Collingwood 980, Holland 1117
Individual winners: Senior - G Grundy (Wok); M40 - S Bishop (Wok); M50 - M Lloyd (Col); M60 - J Brown (Wok).

Dulwich Runners and Ful-On-Tri were relegated from Div 2, so the Div 3 teams for next season are:
Collingwood AC
Elmbridge RRC
Croydon Harriers
Sutton Runners
Dulwich Runners
Runnymede Runners
Woking AC
West 4 Harriers
Ful-on-Tri

Many thanks to all who contributed through the season: Neil, Ercole, Robert, Martin, Steve, Bill, Dean, Richard, Andy A, Shaun, Nigel, David, Andy S, Doug, Rupert, Roger, Andy R, Andrew G, Jason, and Paul. Sharpen up your spikes and studs for a return to Div 3 for the first time since 2002/3. Fixture 1 - 20 October 2012.

I have not received amended results to date (17/02/12) so have corrected obvious mistakes in the full results myself.

Surrey Ladies XC League - Fix 4 - West End Common

Results Index  Div 1 Results  Div 1 Table  Div 2 Results  Div 2 Table

Official results revised 18/02/12.

Collingwood's 2 teams were 12th and 29th out of 31 on the day, and 3 scoring teams finished 15th, 32nd, and 45th out of 48 at the end of the season.

Well done to the ladies and thanks to all those who took part through the season - Mary, Jenny, Ruth, Annette, Sandhya, Karen, Kate, Elaine, Cat, Gill, Lorraine, Rachel, and Alison. I believe this is the first time we've had 3 scoring teams (albeit 2 scoring in only some fixtures), and 15th place is the highest finish since the 2006/7 season, when there were fewer clubs competing.

Pilgrims Challenge - Overall

Results Index  Full Results

Annette reports: "When it said on the forecast last week that it was going to snow I didn't really pay much attention! Mistake 1! I did expect it to be cold so had layers and was wrapped up well. I blagged a lift to the start which was really useful although it did mean I was going out with the 10am start; I've run the course before and don't mind being on my own so wasn't really too worried about that bit. But it was still colder than I expected so I added a layer fully expecting to take it off (along with my gloves and BVH woolly hat) well that wasn't to be, I was glued to them for the rest of the weekend it felt like!

The route was mainly ok although I did manage to get someone lost! But in my defence it really wasn't on purpose! I don't mind being on my own but I found myself behind a random walker and he kept looking behind to see where I was and it was kind of freaking me out a bit and not concentrating! So when one of the guys from CP 3 caught up with me and said he was going to the finish I was glad to see him. We got to a junction without a sign and the instructions said take the steep path up the hill. It didn't look as familiar as I would have liked BUT the instructions were clear so off up the hill we went it was steep so I was quite slow and he headed off much more quickly, BAD news for him! Because it was the wrong turn! Someone had helpfully removed the sign pointing the other way! But I checked my phone GPS and decided to head back down the hill and found a helpful dog walker! (I wasn't the only one to go wrong here but it certainly added time to my day) BUT I NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN! Ooops!

The rest of the day was fairly uneventful and I made it back in just over 7 hours! Not fast for some but a PB for me! I got back and got myself booked into see my favourite physio! Then sorted out my bed and grabbed a shower! They have some rather funky mixed showers there but the water was hot and there was enough of it to get us warm and clean again. Dinner was good and there was plenty of it! We had sort of arranged to meet a mate at the pub but by then it was dark and even colder and starting to SNOW! As much as I would have loved to have shared a jar with Cat and Josh it was not to be and I stayed to listen to an amazing story of one man's journey across the States! Funny what stays with you isn't it! Someone asked what James was thinking about during the long days and he told us that he thinks about what he will blog and planning his own funeral! I came back to this several times the next days during the LONG hours it took to get back to Farnham!

Next day was a thick blanket of snow and since I had planned to start slowly that's exactly what I did! Last year I struggled till the check point at Ranmore and so had decided to walk up and run down till I got to that point and all went pretty well till I got to Box Hill at which point all went to hell! For those who don't know me I have Osteoporosis! This makes me a bit anxious about falling! Unsurprisingly! And the more anxious you are of course the more likely you are to fall! It took me almost 30 minutes to get down those steps by which time I was cold and really p****d off! The next bit was the long walk up Denbies to the check point and so I walked briskly to warm up and was happy to be able to get moving a bit after that point!

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful although long and I decided by the last check point to ring my lift home and tell them to leave without me! I called my OH (not realising that the football was on!) and asked him to come and get me instead! Finally I finished at just over 9 hours! A 33 mile PW! BUT I still had a great time I still really enjoyed myself and I'll still be back next year! Hopefully without the snow!"

Thames Trot 50

Results Index

Mel reports: "I ran the Thames Trot 50 miles on Sat. The course started 3 miles outside Oxford and we followed the Thames path back to Henley. It was a very early start as we drove to Henley, left the car there then drove to the start. It was very cold waiting to satart the race (-8). I eventually warmed up after about 5 miles. The course was very pretty and flat apart from a few hills where the path left the riverside. I was aiming to finish in around 10 hours, due to my recent form and stomach pains, however it turned out to be a good day, no pains and a finish time of 9 hours 9 mins. Good day at the office.

Nice polo shirt and medal for my efforts. Definitely woud do this one again."

The Perch

Results Index  Full Results

Official times 29/01/12. 4 course bests today, probably helped by the course being somewhat less muddy than last year, the first running of the race on this course.

Neil reports: "Sunday 29th January was the Perch XIII 6.25 mile run, hosted by Epsom Oddballs. Collingwood, as is the new usual, were out in force, with 17 finishers and a few more helping. Rachel, one of our new members, who has already very much been pulling her weight at the XC had to pull out after half way. And her husband Richard didn't look too good at the end either - that's one running bug I don't want to catch!

John Allen, there in a supporting role, seemed to find a quick way of getting around the course, and as fast as I could run round, he was there waiting to cheer me on. Thank you John. I'm sure you cheered everybody else on as well and am sure they all thanked you too.

To the race and a big shall-I-shan't-I wear my off road shoes. Having warmed up on a muddy part of the course with racing flats on, I opted to change 5 minutes before the start and wished I hadn't. Everybody that hadn't worn trail shoes wished they had. From the start, three headed away from me and I was determined not to repeat my disaster of last week (sorry, too little time) by following them too closely and burning out later on, so I did my own thing. One other whippet overtook me after about half a mile leaving me in 5th place. By 1.5 miles, whippet man had crashed and I reeled him in, followed by Mr 3 before the 3rd mile. So now I was in 3rd and leaving them behind.

I spent the rest of the race in no-man's land watching from the clearings the one and only Danny Norman (AKA Josh's new BFF) jostling for 1st with the eventual winner. After the race, he said he wished he'd chosen trail shoes.

So I bagged 3rd place (in my Collingwood vest, hoorah) and 1st V40. Prizes were shared (I'm all for sharing) so I got 1st V40. But a bit strange that someone I overtook, who came 4th has a medal with 3rd place on it! I absolutely loved the event. I knew so many people there that it felt like Roundshaw parkrun. The Flynns were there, as were the Chiltern Church lot. And the Mansion House cafe does a fantastic Victoria Sponge. They must have made a killing today.

Very well organised and marshalled, but I did miss the finish funnel, as I'm sure Josh will delight in telling you. Oh, and one more thing - my medal says 10k - thanks Rupert for pointing that out! Covering both ends of the field, Kate ran a determined race, this after parkrun and XC yesterday and she promises to be on the track tomorrow."

Battle Of Northampton Challenge

Results Index

Mel reports: "I was very nervous and anxious as I gathered with the others at the start of the first ever Battle of Northampton Challenge. I had decided if the pains in my stomach started then I would dnf and cancel all marathons/ultra until I got myself sorted. Of course I wanted to believe the pain would not reoccur, as I didn't want to cancel my planned races. I took the whole run very easy and convinced myself if I did this I would not have the pains. It seemed to work. No stomach pains, great!! I was still getting some slight pain at the tops of both legs, but it was bearable and not serious enough to cancel future runs at the moment.

This course was 5 laps of a reservoir with lots of twists and turns, runners going in all directions, it did get a bit confusing. I bumped into Robbie Red Hat, he said where do I go now? I answered, I have no idea! Where do I go? We looked around a bit then a marshall came along and sent me one way and Robbie the other. The terrain was a mix of grass, trail and concrete paths. Not a very quick course, the winning time was 3 hours 19mins.

The facilities were good, race HQ being a gym, there were warm showers and nice quiet changing rooms to use. After the event there was a raffle and post-race massage. All the monies raised were donated to the local hospice. I finished in 4 hours 23 mins, purposely not fast, but still enough to bag me 4th lady! Robbie I think was around 6 hours."

Official results (part) 29/01/12. The first time we've run this course in Stanmer Park, Brighton. A nice course but tough. Some great long descents, but of course what goes down must go up. There were 2 particularly taxing uphills. For one of these it was debatable whether running or walking was the faster way up.

745 finishers for the men's race and 335 for the women.

Winter Tanners 30

Results Index

Andy reports: "I chose to run the 30 miles of the Winter Tanners today having run only one ten miler since June. Some said I was silly, some said I was stupid and Gill said I was .......... Well you can guess what she thought! Not actually printable!

Anyway, the new route this year, was for me, the best route I have run in either the Winter or old Summer Tanners; it was an excellent course, run with good conditions under foot. It was freezing at the start, but five degrees by the finish, on a route that went out under the North Downs and came back on top of it, starting and finishing from a car park in Leatherhead. There were some familiar parts of the route and some new sections which went past some lovely houses with great views. The ‘route narrative’ was excellent, so no detours off route this time.

I decided to do a jog/walk strategy from the start, walking up anything that looked like a hill. Even though I started at 8am, I took a torch with me as I was worried about locking up completely and finishing after dark! However, taking it sensibly, I was able to run well, much better than I could ever hope for. I never tired, but was stiffening from 21 miles onwards. I was aiming for sub-7 hours, but was heading towards sub-6, so pushed on over the last few miles and finished in 5:56! I was delighted with that time and ever more delighted to be back on the marathon trail again. Even more delighted than that, I can still walk this evening, if not too comfortably; tomorrow might be different though!

Richard and Bill started much later than me, yet they still managed to cruise past me in the last couple of miles, obviously having a good run."

Allan reports: ""It was the Tanners today. First run back since injury & furthest I'd run since then was 5 miles. So it was tough, but a run-walk got me round in just under 8hrs. Shocking time but it's done & dusted."

Karen reports: "This is a two lap race around the wonderfully scenic Ashburnam Place near Battle. The rather fierce uphill section was followed by a very muddy downhill. The hill seemed so much steeper the second time around! Lots of runners turned out on what was a perfect, if somewhat chilly day for the chance to run around the wonderfully scenic gardens of this stately home that is normally closed to the general public. The race was well organised by Nice Work and each runner was presented with a medal and a Christmas pudding at the end."

Doug's 50th marathon.

Doug reports: "On Sunday I ran the Saxon Shore Marathon on the coast from Deal to Sandwich with the Royal St. George Golf course on one side and the sea on the other. The predicted rain did not materialise however the stiff headwind gave plenty of opportunity for running on the spot. The race was part of a w/e double but I only ran on the Sunday finishing my 50th marathon in 5:56:30 and receiving an excellent goodie bag which included a can of strongbow and a giant toblerone!"

Cat finished in 1302nd place in a 1 hour 31 minutes and I managed 1 hour 31 minutes and 17 seconds coming in in 1304th place. It really was great fun! 1945 ran."

Great runs from Andy and Dean on a fairly muddy Farthing Downs. Most of us left well splattered, especially Dean and Ercole who both made close up inspections of the terrain.

My friend Kat ran the middle leg, Norbury Manor. It was very challenging, but worth it for the fabulous views from the top.

IceMan 11k Trail Run

Results Index  Full Results

Official results updated 21/11/11.

Cat reports: "On Saturday 19th November, I ran the Human Race IceMan 11k trail run on army training
ground near Frimley. As you were allowed to run this race with dogs, I had my
favourite running partner Leka with me. Also on the same day was a 16k
trail run and a duathlon (10k run, 18k bike, 5k run). The 11k run consisted
of a 6 k loop of the mountain bike course (with 5 hills that "even the army's
tanks struggle on"!) and one 5k loop of the run course.

Runners with dogs started about 2 minutes after the others and its was
definitely the noisiest start line I have ever experienced! After a few minutes
I realised tackling the steep downhills (which I normally power down) was going
to be much tougher with Leka, so the challenge was to control her speed while trying to
make the most of the downhills without falling a*** over t**!! First 6k was
fairly challenging but I managed a good time and I was under the impression that
this was the toughest part of the course over with and the rest would be a
breeze.... how wrong I was!! The final 5k was hill after hill after hill
combined with ruts, tree roots and loose leaves making for a slow and gruelling
2nd half. I tried out two tactics for the extremely steep downhills; hold Leka
close and go as slow as possible (one hill was so steep even she didn't want to
walk down it...), however the 2nd tactic usually won out which was let Leka lead, grit
my teeth and hope for the best.... I now have very sore toenails!

The finish was slightly confusing with 3 funnels and poor direction - Leka
wanted to follow the 16k runners and duathletes to the right but I was more than
happy to go left over the finish line! All in all a good (very tough) trail race
through nice woodland. Got a nice Asics technical t-shirt for my troubles too."

A20 Path 'n' Downs

Results Index  Full Results

Mel reports: "On Sunday Steve and I ran the A20 paths and downs. This was a new marathon which had previously been a 21 mile run. The webpage was very vague with its course description so didn't know what to expect. The name to me seemed to suggest there would be a lot of off-road and it started in Hollingbourne near Maidstone so I presumed it would be fairly flat.

The facilities were nice, the registration was at the Mercure hotel which contains the Seb Coe leisure centre. After chatting to a few people I decided to run in my road shoes as they said there was a lot of tarmac paths.
The race started at 9am on the path right next to the A20, we ran along this path for quite a way before turning into a country road and after 3 miles up a huge hill. The route then followed this road, winding through the countryside. Then back along the path next to the A20. There was another big hill at about 7 miles and again at 10.5 the rest of the course was very undulating and all on tarmac, right decision to wear road shoes. I found the course quite tedious as we spend a lot of it running alongside the A20. The highlight of my day was hearing the bagpipes playing at a rememberance service, this brought a tear to me eye.

The drink stations were plentiful and stocked jaffa cakes and jelly babies. The course was slightly long at 26.7 miles. I managed to finish in 4 hours 13.37. I didn't see Steve at the end as I had to get back and go to work. Steve finished in 4 hours 29 mins."

Dalby Dash

Results Index  Full Results

Nigel reports: "I ran the Dalby Dash on Sunday, a hilly 10k trail run in Dalby Forest in the North Yorkshire moors. The first 3k are uphill and hard - there's a king of the mountains prize for the first men and women to the top - but after that it gently runs mostly downhill until another kick up at about 2k to go. The hill sorted the field out quite quickly and I was in a group of 3 for most of the race. I was expecting around 43 mins but was pleasantly suprised with 42.08 and 46th overall so a bit of a return to form."

Druids Challenge

Results Index  Full Results

Dave reports: "This weekend was the 3rd running of the Druids 3-day event, which covered a section of the old Roman Ridgeway stretching from Berkshire to Avon. Annette did fantastically and completed all 3 days and I managed to join up for the Saturday and Sunday events.

The paths were a mix of hard chalky paths and mud tracks which seems to twist and turn forever. We followed the Ridgeway signs which made it virtually impossible to get lost. This was handy as my directions had turned into papier mache after an hour.

It was very well organised. Neil and his team have a really slick operation and I can't think of many ways they could improve it. There was lots of food at the venues and plenty of snacks during the race.

We mixed with familiar faces we remembered from previous events and on the whole everyone was very friendly. Sleeping in the big hall was as interesting as ever. Bodies sprawled all over the place like a hurricane refuge center.

There was a talk given by motivational coach and experienced runner Rory Coleman on the Saturday evening but I found him a bit too preachy about how to lead a perfect lifestyle, so I popped into the village for a couple of pints instead.

Legs feel a bit stiff now but no worse than an ordinary 26 miler. In fact I was quicker on the final day which was a
mile longer.

I know Annette really enjoyed it and is keen for the Pilgrims in February and schedule permitting I'd jump at the
chance to do another. 10/10 weekend."

Dave reports: "I had organised a half term trip to Paris for the Le Mans marathon last Sunday but my wife was too sick to travel so I needed something to cheer me up. Luckily Dave Bayley who runs Enigma running kindly let me sign up for this. He's a big Collingwood fan.

This was the first running of the race which was an out and back race 3.6 miles or so along a canal towpath. There were only 25 runners but that made for good banter as we continually passed each other.

First time I ran with an ipod for a while and it really helped as the rain lashed down. Great medal, loads of water
and snacks and a free pint after! Marathon #23 ticked off 4h15

Beachy Head Marathon

Results Index  Full Results

Mel reports: "I ran the Beachy Head Marathon. This was my fourth time of running it. It doesn't get any easier. The course is a tough hilly one which runs over the Seven Sisters. The scenery is stunning. There was quite a strong wind throughout at times making it difficult to run into. There was one man who kept passing me, then I would pass him, he said to me oh I am tired I still have Berlin in my legs. I asked when was that he said a month ago, so I shouldn't be running today, I have not recovered and it is really affecting me. I kept quiet, didnt want to embarrass the poor man. I did end up finishing before him.

However I had a good running managing to knock 13 minutes off my course best and finishing in 4 hours 29mins 55. Very happy with that. I met Richard and Bill afterwards, Bill did about 4 hours 6 mins and Richard 4 hours 18."

Surrey Badger Half

Results Index  Full Results

On Sunday 9 October 7 Collingwood members ran the Surrey Badger Half Marathon, a hilly off-road race starting from Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking running around Norbury Park near Leatherhead.

Annette reports: "Sunday morning saw a number of Collingwood runners congregating on the Denbies Vineyard near Dorking. A new start saw great changing and toilet areas with an inside bag drop area and a very short walk to the start. Various club members had a variety of plans and we divided up quite early on, Ruth headed out promptly in line with her Dublin plan, Annette and Paul kept each other company and Lorraine was accompanied by her minders, Ali and Cat.

The weather was really kind to us all and after the rain over night we had a cool start although the sun came out later on. The Badger is always a hilly route and the new version was no different! Having run out along the road we headed out into the hills and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine!

We had a couple of surprises at the end of the race running into some old friends (Wendy popped up at the finish) and new ones! Thanks very much to Josh and Neil for making a welcome committee at the end! And to Josh for bringing supplies with him! Also at the finish line was Karen in a different sort of uniform from the rest of us!

Once over the line we collected our tee-shirts, chocolate bar and BEER! A great technical tee shirt and the beer wasn’t bad either! Ali probably has the prize for the most attendances but I think the rest of us will be back to!"

Alison reports: "Today, Bill, Karen and I ran the Titsey Trail 10k. This rather hilly off-road trail 10k around Oxted and Limpsfield was really friendly, well-marshalled and good fun. It was also a bit on the warm side! We were all set off in predicted times so slower runners didn't start at the front and cause bottlenecks. This worked well. There was a baggage drop, plenty of loos and tea and cakes afterwards and loads of spot prizes (good technical tshirts)."

Results Index  Full Results

Mel reports: "On Sat I ran the Welsh Ultra Series Event 1. This event is organised by Might Contain Nuts. The series is four events however you can enter as many as you like. They are approx mileage, self sufficent off road hilly courses. The event started at Cymdhu camp site and caravan park, was an early start 7.30am. I was so tired as didn't get much sleep in my very hard bunk bed, that I managed to get into about 11.30pm, after a long drive and late dinner.

At the registration I signed in and was told to check that I had all the compulsory kit (long trousers, hat, gloves, foil blanket, whistle, long sleeve top, waterproofs, food and water) I had 2 of those, I signed to say I had it all, I didn't think not having the other bits would be a problem today, the sun was out already. As soon as the race started we were heading uphill, we continued to climb for the first 5/6 ish miles, then it was downhill for a bit, then uphill again, through very rough bracken and narrow paths, I heard a man behind me saying just wait until we get to the big one, I looked up at this one and thought 'this is not the big one'.

We continued up and up and up. After about 13 miles, where it was flat for a bit we ran past a gorgeous Welsh castle/cathedral couldn't read what it was called. I was busy admiring it,after running past it I looked ahead at the course again, that is when I saw it THE BIG ONE! this hill was huge, it was a mountain, probably the biggest in Wales! I continued up it very slowly, my legs were screaming and I was only 1/4 of the way up. This hill took forever to climb, on reaching the top, we ran along the ridge for several miles, before eventually coming back down, on very tricky, rocky paths. I managed to fall over, landed on my backside so all ok.

My garmin ran out of battery, I reckoned I had run about 27 miles, On reaching the last checkpoint, the guy there said only 4 miles to go, I said oh I thought we had about 3, he replied well the course is actually 31.5 miles. Off I went up yet another hill. I managed to pass lots of people going up this hill, people were flagging during the heat, boy it was hot. I managed from time to time pour cold water from the streams over my head to keep cool. That last four miles seemed to go on forever. We ran through woodland areas, across streams and along muddy paths.

The last couple were on the road, again I managed to pass about 5 people here, who said they had 32 miles on their garmin. Where was the finish? Eventually I came round the corner and I could see the camp site, I finished in 7 hours 35 ish (will have to check official times when they come out as no garmin). The finish was lovely everyone was sitting around the picnic tables, listening to the music from the cafe and enjoying cold beers. I was told the total mileage was 33 and there was 1850 feet of ascent. A very very tough course in really hot conditions. I have entered the 2nd in the series which is 40 miles."

The results were pretty much as predicted although Alex managed a massive season's best! Annette was pleased just to have got around in one piece having had a longish run the day before. The weather was really good and the organisation really quite good considering this was the second time this event had been organised. Annette had been promised a flat run as it was predominately along the disused railway line (The Worth Way) but unfortunately this was not the case! But this was more than made up for by the fabulous welcoming committee from the rest of the family."

Farnham Pilgrim Marathon

Results Index

Mel reports: "Today I ran the Farnham Pilgrim marathon. This started strangely enough in Farnham and followed the North Downs Way in parts and the Pilgrims Way in other parts. It was very very pretty, however quite tough. The trails were sandy in a lot of parts, uphill and sandy makes it fairly hard to run on. The rain held off until 25 miles, when it bucketed down, I was soaked, unfortunately it didn't make me run any faster. The course was almost 27 miles, I finished in 4 hours 40, 12 mins quicker than last year so I am pleased with that.
Medal, t-shirts to all finishers and lots of prizes for age category winners, worth doing. Hard but pretty."

Alison reports: "On Sunday 14 August, a number of Collingwood AC members spent the day running and walk-running around a variety of courses at the 5-4-3-2-1 trail event from Salisbury in Wiltshire. The course options included a 10k, a 20k, a marathon and an Ultra on footpaths, tracks, bridleways and some minor roads. Navigated by written route descriptions, excellent marshalling and clear signage through some beautiful Wiltshire Countryside.

Jenny Sinfield ran the challenging 10k course and clocked 48 minutes coming in 2nd lady and winning a trophy and bottle of wine.

Steve Cooney, Robin Wilson and Dave Freeborn ran the 26.2 mile Marathon.
Steve clocked 4 hours 15, Dave (this was his 20th marathon) and Rob did not get their times in at the time of this race report being written.

And the Fox family; Richard, Alison, Aimee and Dominic walk-ran the 20k route. They completed their route, which was actually 13.55 miles, in 4 hours and 1 minute."

North Downs Way Marathon

Results Index

Mel reports: "On the 13th Aug I had to get up very very early 2.55am. The reason for this was I had to drive Dave to Farnham in time for him to start the NDW 100 miler. This started at 6am, I checked in with him, ensured his dropbags were in place, walked to the start and saw him off. I then made my way back to the car and tried to get some shut eye as the marathon didn't start until 10am. I was able to doze a bit that's all. About 8am I was getting a bit fed up so I went to register, then bumped into some people I knew, so had a chat with them and got ready for the start.

There was a short race briefing then a 5 min walk to the start. The course was all on the North Downs Way, so it started just outside Farnham and followed that until just after St Martha's Church at Guildford where we turned round and ran back to Farnham. The course was quite undulating and difficult to run on parts due to the sandy nature of it. I really enjoyed it though and manged to finish in 4 hours 46 mins and 4th lady. However the 3rd lady only passed me at about 23 miles, I just couldn't keep with her but was a bit disapointed that I had missed out on 3rd lady, having just finished 4 mins behind her, oh well never mind I still received a lovely medal, silver with Hermes on it and a t-shirt.

After the race I made my way home, showered and checked where Dave was. He was further than I expected. I had said that I would meet him at Reigate Hill which was about 64 miles. I quickly made up some flasks of coffee etc and headed over there. Whilst driving there Dave rang to say he would be there in 10 mins, so it was lucky I was on my way. I continued to follow him from checkpoint to checkpoint, The next one was Box Hill. I made it there in plenty time so began to climb the steps to meet him, I got all the way to the top, no sign of him. The 1st, 2nd runners had passed me and at the last checkpoint he was in 3rd so I expected him anytime. Then came through the guy who was 4th, he had passed Dave. I was looking out for him, when I saw a head torch on another path, I knew that was propably Dave, so went along there and it was. I got him back on course and ran back down the steps, over the stepping stones to the checkpoint. Off I went to the next one which was 11 miles away. I waited there from about 10pm until 1am. I was getting very worried and suspected he had got lost again.

He called he was ok, just going slow as it was a really hilly part of the course and he was tiring a lot. When he came in to that checkpoint it was 87 miles, he wanted me to run with him, but I couldn't I had the car and there was no way of getting back for it. I decided instead of meeting him at the last checkpoint, that I would drive to the finish and run from there to meet him. So I started to run at 2am to meet him, I followed my way back up the course I had run this morning, expecting to get about 3 miles or so, the miles went by and still no sign. I reached around 5.5 miles when I saw a faint head torch, it was Dave, his head torch batteries were fading and he could not see very well, we swapped head torches and off we went towards the finish. Now I didn't expect to be running so far, so I was in cargo trousers and a fleece, luckily I did have trainers and sports bra on. He was very tired, but I kept him going and I managed to help him to finish in 22 hours and 39 mins. I ran a total of 42 ish miles but it was worth it.

This was the first running of both these events and there was a 50 mile too. The organisation was great and would do it again, that is the marathon not the extra miles."

Downland 30

Results Index

Mel reports: "On the 24th July 5 collingwood members made the trip to Clayton in Sussex to run the Downland Challenge 30 miler. This is a reasonable hilly 30 starting with a lap round the playing fields in Clayton then heading up the hill passing the windmills onto the South Downs Way. The course was an out and back course, I managed to catch up to Allan a few miles before halfway. He proved to be a bit quick for me on the hills and managed to lose me again just after halfway. On my way back I passed Dave Freeborn who seemed to be doing fine, he was still smiling!! Then I passed Rob and Tom, Rob said how long to half-way? I replied about 2 miles, he mumbled something like no it can't be. I felt as though I was running quite well and was really enjoying the scenery and nice weather. I managed to finish in 52nd place in 5 hours 34:49 only 3 mins behind Allan who was 51st in 5 hours 31:39. Dave was next home in 94th position and time of 6 hours 44:07. Rob must have run away from Tom as he finished in 99th, 7 hours 46:17 and Tom in 100th, 7 hours 54:26.

This is the best time I have ever ran on the course so was happy with my run, Bring on the next one!!!!"

Fairlands Valley Marathon

Results Index

Mel reports: "On the 17th July I ran the Fairlands Valley marathon, this is a self narrative course, I have run it a few times before but still managed to deviate off course a few times. Legs still felt pretty tired, so plodded round, I passed Rob and Tom so stopped and walked a bit with them and had a lovely chat before starting to run again. I managed to finish this week in 5 hours ish, (my garmin packed up at 21 miles so don't know exact time) so it seems like I am slowly recovering. Steve Cooney and Dave freeborn were also running this, Steve finished in 4 hours 20 ish, not sure about Dave.

Fairlands Valley Ultra

Results Index

Allan reports: "I ran the Fairlands Valley Challenge 50km race today, using it as Spartathlon heat training I ran the course wearing three layers to try to make the most of the heat available. I kept the pace fairly steady using my new hydration strategy which worked realy well, worked up quite a sweat despite it being mostly overcast today & very nearly hit my target time of 5hrs, finishing the race in 5.16.42. I used my garmin time & not the clock time as I was a little late for the start waiting for a mate of mine. Race time was about 4mins longer. All in all a good day, with plenty of Collingwood runners doing the Marathon, but I think I was the only one doing the Ultra."

Chichester Challenge Marathon

Results Index

Mel reports: "On the 10th July I ran the Chichester challenge marathon. This course was marked but badly and within the first 1/4 mile everyone was running in the wrong direction, all the runners had to about turn to get back on the correct course, I then ended up behind the walkers on a very narrow path and they were not willing to let me past. I was not bothered as I knew I wouldn't be running fast today, my legs were still very tired from the 100 miles 2 weeks previous. The course markings continued to be a bit dubious, but I ran with a chap who I have run with before from Cornwall Harriers and he knew the route from last year, so I stuck with him. We finished together in 5 hours 11 mins. I struggled round, everything hurt, I obvisously hadn't recovered as well as I thought."

Bewl 15

Results Index

Alison reports: "On Sunday 3 July, Collingwood's Richard Fox and Bill Walsh ran the Bewl 15, a challenging 15 mile trail race around Bewl Water in East Sussex. Richard came in 100th in a time of 1:54:57 and took the last gold medal (first 100 receive a gold medal for their efforts). Bill clocked 1.55.30 coming in 105th place and won a silver for his efforts on his 49th birthday!"

Bill reports: "Richard and myself ran the Bewl 15 mile trail race today organised by Wadhurst Runners. Richard got a Gold medal as he was 100th, and the first hundred got gold, well deserved from near 700 starters. I got a silver medal as I came in 105th, jealous me!

Brilliant race, organisation faultless, sun blazing, perfect.The course was almost all off-road around Bewl water reservoir, very undulating, and had some serious hills in the last 5 miles. Not a PB course, but best to forget the time and admire the scenery. It is easy to see why it gets in the Runners World top 100 races most years, free massages before and after, and we even had a group of runners who travelled from Spain to run it. The race itself had a really relaxed feel about it set in picture postcard countryside, and plentiful water-stops.

Special mention must go to cake marquee at the finish, it was a free cake fest and a brass band provided background music as we quaffed and recovered. One worrying moment occurred whilst being de-chipped, still sweating profusely, to be advised by the race director to check the results as I may have won a trophy. He must have thought I was in the V60 category from my race position! the last mile was near vertical though so I probably didn't look my best at that point. He was either a cheeky so and so, or visually challenged.

We didn't hang around for the prize-giving, obviously, grabbed a greasy bacon bap from the chuck wagon, and drove home, like proper athletes!. Put it in your diary if you haven't done it before, you won't be disappointed."

Summer Enigma Ultra

Results Index

Allan reports: "A Double Day
I ran a double today, well not technically a double as it was a Marathon in the morning & a 30 mile Ultra Marathon in the afternoon. Part of the Enigma series the Marathon is run along the Grand Union Canal & the Ultra was 8 laps around Caldecotte Lake. I took the opportunity to test a pacing strategy that I may use in the Spartathlon later this year, starting with the Marathon, I set out at an easy pace looking for a 4hr finish & judged it perfectly finishing in 4hrs & 4minutes which included a 10 minute chat on the canal bank with a couple of marshalls.

Moving onto the Ultra, I had decided on a run/walk strategy to get me round. Using a system of 25 mins run & 5 min walk I finished the Ultra in 5hrs 13mins going through the Marathon distance in a time of 4hrs 35mins. Hopefully using this system I should be able to see myself through the first major cut-off of 9.5hrs for 52 miles & still have enough energy to get round the remaining 101 miles & still make all of those cut-offs as well.
SDWR next week, 104 miles across the South Downs Way should be a good test for my stamina after this weekend. All looking good for September at the moment."

Western States 100

Results Index  Full Results

Very well done to Mel on completing this 100 mile trail race in California. Excellent achievement.

Mel reports: "On the 25th June at 5am I started running the Western States 100 mile run. As I lined up behind the start line at Squaw valley (home to the 1960 winter Olympics) with another 400ish runners, I suddenly felt very very nervous looking straight up the snow covered hill I was about to climb, why am I doing this, I can’t run 100 miles was going through my head. Too late the siren had gone and off I went. It was a slow start as the first four miles rises 2550 feet, cresting at Emigrant Pass at 8750 feet.

Once reaching the top of Emigrant pass I ran through the Granite chief wilderness area, this section 4 ish miles to 13 was completely covered in snow and ice. The snow was particularly difficult to run on due to the camber, being very slippery and very hard and rutted. I arrived at the checkpoint which was 13 miles, it had taken me 4 hours and 5 mins to get there, How on earth am I going to make this, The severity of what I was attempting was hitting me and I was very concerned. I remembered what they had said in the newbie speech the day before “don’t worry about losing time in the snow, you will be able to make it up on the downhill sections” Ok so I plodding on. The next checkpoint was at 19.6 miles, I was looking forward to getting there as I had some nice dry socks and a cooler top to change into. Once leaving Poppy Trailhead the third checkpoint the course went through an area which obviously suffered a forest fire at some point, the trees were charred and very eerie looking, The trial wasn’t too bad here, little bit undulating that’s all.

I continued to run through this scarred forest to reach the top of the hill Duncan Canyon at 23.8 miles, 6 hours and 28 mins had passed, meaning that I was 25 mins behind the 30 hour cut off time, I have to make up some more time I thought, but not knowing how it would be possible. It was getting really hot and I was tiring already.

I ran on and on through forest trials and dirt paths, up and down the hills and to my delight at the next checkpoint I was within the 30 hour cut off, maybe I will make it after all. Then came the canyons, I had heard about these from several past runners of the western states and in Dean Karnazas book, surely they can’t be that bad! The first one drops 2000 feet, crosses a small river then ascends an extremely steep 1500 feet, the second straight after descends 2600 feet, crosses a small river then ascends 1800 to reach Michigan Bluff at 55.7 miles. This was one of the checkpoints were they weighed you to check all was ok. I jumped on the scales, sorry girl they said you have lost too much weight you are going to have to stay here a while and gain it before we let you carry on. I couldn’t believe it, I felt fine and was running well at that point, they made me eat Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and drink coke until my weight was back to normal. When I sat down here I was in tears, if they keep me here I will miss the time I have just made up and now be well behind the 30 hour cut off. The marshal said to me, you will be fine dear, stay here a while, then when we are ready we will let you carry on, But I have missed the cut off now I said, I will never make that time up, He said you can never say that In the Western States, I took this opportunity to pick up my head torch, change socks again and tie a long sleeve top around my waist ready for the night section. After 20 or so mins I managed to put on the weight so they let me continue.

Off I went again, I thought I would not be able to make up the time; I was now only 20 mins inside the ultimate cut-off, when they pull you off the course. The next 7 miles were hard as it was getting dark; running along these trials in the dark takes all your concentration. As I ran down yet another canyon, thankfully not quite as steep as the other 2, I was convinced I saw an elephant, It can’t be I am in California, as I got closer it turned out to be a tree, then I saw a rattlesnake that was moving towards me, I stopped, looked behind me, no one was there, what I am going to do, I couldn’t side step it as I would fall down the canyon, I walked very slowly closer and closer to it, then realised it was only where a previous male runner had gone foe a wee. On reaching Foresthill at 62 miles, I was so glad as here I picked up My pacer Laura Kantor a ultra-runner from Bend, Oregon, I hugged her like she was my long lost best friend, I was so happy not to be on my own for the rest of the night. We chatted away and the miles were passing quickly, the trial was undulating along this section, there were also a few steep hills. As I got tired I would stop at the bottom of the hill, put my hands on my knees, I just needed to do this, why I don’t know, then I would stand up straight, look at the hill and walk/run up it, Laura kept saying, keep moving, keep moving, you will get that buckle. Somehow I didn’t believe her as I was still out-with the 30 hour cut off.

We arrived at the famous Rucky Chucky river crossing it was 4.13am, 13 mins behind the 30 hour cut-off, Before we got in the boat to cross, A marshal called me to jump on the scales, oh no!!! But my weight was spot on; Laura had brought M & Ms that I had been eating all night, along with more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The boat crossing was a highlight, it was great fun, and we joked with the guys rowing the boats and rested for the short while it took to cross. Normally you have to wade through here, but this year due to a very high snowfall, the river was too high and fast flowing to do it. We disembarked the boat, at the other side, that was 78 miles done. The next aid station was only just over a mile away, that’s close I thought, yes I know now why, it was all the way uphill. But to my surprise I checked in there only 7 mins outside the 30 hour cut-off. Laura was still very encouraging, see your making up time, you can do it. I was getting really tired now after all I had been running for 24 hours now. I could see the start of the sunset, it was getting light again. That was very uplifting; I could make up some time now, as I could see where I was running. At the next checkpoint, I left my head-torch, changing into a fresh t-shirt and refuelled with, yes you guessed it peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, they did have chicken soup, burritos, grilled cheese sandwiches, choc brownies, sweets, nuts etc etc etc, but all I seemed to fancy was the peanut butter and jelly, they seemed to be working to.

I left this checkpoint feeling pretty positive, it was a lovely morning, lovely scenery and I only had about 15 miles to run. Something inside my head, said you can do this, you are going to make the cut-off and pick up that buckle. Laura also kept saying, which was starting to drive me mad, your awesome girl, good job, and other Typical American sayings. From there on from checkpoint to checkpoint I was making up time. After passing through highway 49 checkpoint I was 5 mins inside the 30 hours, still wasn’t a foregone conclusion, I still had to work hard to gain more time. I really don’t know where the strength came from, but I was able to run and run and run, I thought It has gone a bit quiet, I looked behind and my pacer had gone, I had lost her, I carried on as I couldn’t afford the time to wait on her. I was running around one corner when I familiar figure, Bogdan who I had met on the mountain a few days before checking out the course, on that day he had given me so much advice on running the Western States, he had started it 10 times and finished 6.

He shouted hello Melanie, Hello! I replied, he said you need to keep running, where is your pacer? She is behind I said, He said ok I will be back in a minute. He ran back to my pacer and I think told her to hurry up. He returned and said at the next checkpoint I am going to take your hydro-pak, give you my water bottle and you are going to run the last 3 miles, there are a few steep hills he said, but if you run, then you will make it. I took his advice. I left that last checkpoint, 3 miles to go, I can run 3 miles easy I thought. I took off like a hare chasing a rabbit in determination to get my buckle I am so close now; I am not going to miss it. At this point I ran across no hands bridge- the longest concrete bridge in the world at the time of its construction.

On reaching a hill, I looked up, oh its steep I thought, but I knew I couldn’t walk, I ran up it slowly, when reaching the top, I wondered where my pacer had gone, she hadn’t caught up. But Bogdan was there. As the trial finished and I reached the pavement in Auburn, there was another hill, I saw Dave standing at the top, He was encouraging me and saying you only have a mile, I looked at the time it was 10.25ish, The cut off was 11am, it was then I knew I had done it, As I ran alongside Dave, I felt myself drifting away from him to, I could smell the finish line and there was no stopping me, As I entered the stadium for the final part around the track, I felt so elated, the crowd were cheering, the announcement came over the tandoid, “ this is Melanie Ross from Aberdeen, Scotland just as I crossed the line. Wow what a feeling I had been running for 29 hours 37 mins and I felt alive, elated, indescribable actually. I received my medal, jumped on the scales for the final time and got my blood pressure taken, it a bit high the medic said, Yes well I have just ran 100 miles.

The whole experience was amazing, I went through every emotion along the way, It was a great event, I got a finishers medal, The famous buckle, t-shirts, fleece, rucksack, pin badge, arm sleeves, calf guards. Well worth the £245 entry. Will I do it again, mmm I am still thinking about it. I did say at the end I wouldn’t but maybe someday."

BT Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

Results Index

Finish time for group of 4, 7:43 10th place out of 90 starters

Bill reports: "On Sat 11th June I took part in the BT Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge with 3 of my colleagues to take up a gauntlet that had been thrown down in a drunken moment at a conference by a team that had done it several times. Their PB was 9.30 last year, so 6 months ago I started to get my 3 fellow non-runners into shape for the challenge ahead. From 2 miles jog/walk in Nonsuch Park they were eventually taking 10 mile runs around Box-Hill in their stride. All this was kept totally secret from the competition of course, who thought we were going to crash and burn on the day. As I noticed several people gave up at the top of the first peak.

The dinner the night before involved a lot of, we don't have this or that but we have an I-phone with GPS and compass so what can go wrong. They were laughing at our lack of perceived preparation. A trip to the local Tescos for a map was even mentioned, we declined. Little did they know we had regular conference calls, mileage updates, training days, lead roles and were fully kitted to the hilt.

The route takes in the peaks of Pen-y-Gent, Whernside and Ingleborough 24.5 miles on my Garmin. It has about 5,500ft of Ascent and Descent not far off the Picnic which I'm due to do next week, hopefully if legs stop aching. The route gets quite busy with other events taking place and was definitely harder than I envisaged, a lot of it was unrunable, just about walkable and some sheer drops were uncomfortably close!

Anyway we passed our competition within the first mile, I wanted to let them start before us so we could run past them, and mentally destroy them. The look on their faces as we yomped past them in running gear waving maps , compasses etc. was a picture. The boys did well and for the first 15 miles, we ran as much as we could and made good time. Two picked up injuries, twisted ankle and dodgy hip so the last 9 miles became a walk, with 1 mile on the last climb taking 32 mins, great effort though giving the circumstances.

We finally finished in a creditable 10th pace in 7.43, our competition 10.31, job done! They were very gracious in defeat, even when we presented their 2nd place trophy (2 inches high) at dinner and we got the waitress to present our big double handed cup to us, quality! Yes we were so prepared and confident we even bought trophies.

All in all a great weekend and would thoroughly recommend the race. The boys are already talking about getting fitter and going sub-7 next year to get a podium place, they have that running bug"

Steve reports: "I did a couple of races today. After completing the Banstead Woods parkrun 5k run at 9am, I rushed over to Swanley in Kent for "The Grim II Beast in the East", a tough 10k race organised by the Grim Challenge Organisers. The run took place on the famous Canada Heights Motocross track and started at 10.30 am. It also included trails and grassland as well as the massive hills on the motocross circuit itself.

I finished the race in 55 minutes exactly.

It was chip timing but no results yet. May be in later."

Andy reports: "I ran the Esher Church School 10km, an event recommended to me last year by John Allen, which does not attract that many club runners. It is a friendly fund-raiser that was run mostly on tracks and paths, with about 3km on roads. Good conditions underfoot, if a little dusty, with a gently undulating route. I struggled with my injury to finish 36th of 203 runners in an official time of 43:44, having never really got going and being unable to push on."

Hart Sprint Triathlon

Results Index

Alison reports: "I completed the Hart Sprint Tri on Bank Holiday Monday 2 May at Hartsmere Leisure Centre near Fleet, Hampshire. I'd been persuaded to join a couple of my neighbours and have a go at a triathlon!
I actually really enjoyed it! Distances were 400m pool swim, 20km bike and 5k cross country, taking in 2 stiles, crossing a small river and negotiating a woodland trail full of stinging nettles!

Set off from home with Rich, Dom and Leka at 7.15 and drove down to the venue. Got there and then registered - I was starting at 9am. Collected my numbers but only needed one as I was using a tri belt. Had my number written on my left arm and left leg in permanent marker (I was 422)! Went back out to put number on tri belt, get bike and associated transition box into transition area. Had a bit of an issue racking my bike as the saddle of my bike was too high for the rack! 5 minutes later sorted using handlebars to prop up - meh! Got stuff out ready - helmet, number belt, gloves and sunglasses, towel for feet, trainers and socks and talc.

Quick trip to the loo and then it was time to go and get to the pool! Allocated lane 3, got green swim cap to put on and after the first 3 sharing my lane were in, it was my turn. Late starting - 9.15am. Got in - goggles demisted, nose clip on and I was ready. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and GO! Followed my plan to do 4 or so lengths breastroke-freestyle-breastroke-freestyle until the adrenaline calmed down and my breathing levelled out. First length freestyling and found shallow end of pool too shallow to properly extend arm for good freestyle stroke! Eh!?

Anyway, cracked on with the freestyle and didn't really breastroke again - it was too tiring! Lost count and asked how many I'd done - 10 - okay, only 6 to go! Cracked on again and was so happy to see the 2 to go board. Finished the swim and got out of the pool after having a major fight with my swimming hat! It did not want to come off and we had to take them off and leave them at the pool for the next user! Picked up Collingwood sweatshirt and crocs I'd worn before starting and off I went to transition!

Over mat and chip started. I was a bit slow in transition - too much to do! Dried feet, talc-ed them, socks and trainers on. Top on over tri-suit (it was windy and chilly) and number belt on. Helmet on, glasses on, bike off rack and off I went at a wee jog with the bike. Mounting area, got on and sped off out of the complex. Oo-er, something's missing! Drink - check, number - check, bike gloves - oops! Naked hands! :-)

The cycle was no faff at all - absolutely adored it. Thought I'd done about 10k and then a 15k marker appeared. Wow - felt strong, comfy and happy. Tri suit was great and the only challenge with the bike was taking the drinks bottle out of the holder and grabbing a drink without being blown off the bike! It was very windy indeed!
Finished the last 5k and into the complex. Dismounted and jogged into transition again.

Bike racked up, hat off, top off, number turned round and out for a fairly flat but very rutted 5k cross-country.
Legs felt a bit leaden, but not totally jelly and I set off across the field. This felt pretty slow - it was very uneven underfoot so I was all over the shop, like a drunken runner! Few doglegs, first stile, down to the river and ran through it (glad I brought the trail shoes!) out and across more fields, second stile, past farm...more fields...through woods (mind those stinging nettles - ouch!) and then back out onto the road I had cycled in at the end of the bike section. Then out across the playing field, round and round the edge and finally the finish was in sight.

Dom ran to meet me and encouraged me in - I couldn't even say hello to him! I just smiled and looked a bit knackered! Rich shouted me in and I finished over the chip mat. Enjoyed the experience very much and am now looking at one for June and another for July!"

Pony Express Multistage Ultra

Results Index  Full Results

Annette reports: "Friday of the Royal Wedding saw a number of Collywobblers madly packing their bags and rechecking the contents! Nicky had volunteered to drive Dave, Suzy and I down for the first Pony Express and was also going to help out on one of the checkpoints. We had decided rather than having a really early start on the Saturday we would stop over at the Etap in Southhampton. For both Dave and Suzy this was a new and wondrous experience, Nicky and I are devotees of the Etap! Following a walk and tasty supper we came back out to find it pouring with rain! It was however the last rain of the weekend! We slept pretty well and then got to our starting point in good time for our briefing. At 10.00 the three of us headed out with the Adder warning ringing in our ears! Yes that’s right we were told that there was an official notices that there might be Adders in the undergrowth not so bad for the men but not good news for the women who might need to visit the bushes at some point during the day!

We all had OS maps with the route on plus a fairly detailed route narrative and the route had been marked and then remarked and then remarked again! However the locals don’t like people running/walking or cycling through their woods and as a result many of the signs had been taken down (repeadedly!). This of course led to some frustration throughout the next two days! Fortunately I teamed up with someone of a similar pace who had good glasses and I reciprocated by having good distance vision, between us we managed to stay on track! Apart from early on the first day when we needed some help from a passing stranger with a Garmin Oregon, we managed just fine and didn’t add any extra miles to our already long day! The first day was 30 miles and so we really did not want to add anything to that!

The checkpoints were at odd distances owing to the trail through the woods but were very welcome when we got to them. The New Forest is really quite hilly in parts and my strategy had always been to walk up the hills and run down them so that’s what we did. This meant that as the day went on we were able to catch up with some of the others who had started well but taken detours at some point or other. One person who found themselves on the wrong side of the river decided to swim across! Rather foolhardy but fortunately he made it to the other side, but not something I would recommend! My favourite quote of the day was from another runner who appeared from completely the wrong direction complaining about the lack of signs! Perhaps he thought there should be signs saying “this is not the right way!”

Finally we all met up at the sports hall that was to be our accommodation for that night and where Nicky had bagsied us a corner. Sleeping bags were set out and showers had, I booked myself a massage (along with 20 others!) and we got ourselves organised. The school chef had agreed to cook and we had a fantastic dinner of chicken or salmon and jacket or roast spuds! Once we had eaten it was a case of a glass of wine for me and a trip to the pub for Dave (with his new BF) sadly my wine did not help me sleep although I can’t speak for Dave’s beer!

Breakfast was full English and porridge! YUMM! And we all set off again at 8.00! we started with a stiff uphill (great!) before travelling over an exposed moorland into a strongish headwind. The first couple of turns were difficult as signs had been taken down again! But once we got going it was fine although hilly again! Dave had a slightly more difficult day having decided to run with a group of kind American ladies who promptly got him lost! Some hours later he caught up with his running mates of the previous day have had a substantial detour!

As before the checkpoints were at a variety of distances and at one there was a very cute pony who was determined to eat the cake before the runners could! However nothing was going to get between me and the famous XNRG homemade rocky road! And having refuelled we were off again, day 2 was a different although still challenging route comprising nearly all off road trails and paths and was only 29 miles! Nicky was at the finish and was a very welcome sight as I crossed the finish line somehow still smiling! But with rather sore feet! Injuries were low! For me one blister on my foot and a bruise on my arm where I pinched my arm in a gate!

We had a chance to shower and change into our new XNRG tee-shirts before heading back! We had a hot and busy weekend but a fantastic time. The scenery was fantastic, the company amazing and an experience definitely to be repeated! Question is which one! And who can I persuade to keep me company? Any offers?"

Stockley Park 10k

Results Index  Full Results

Josh reports: "Lorraine, Cat and I travelled to Uxbridge on Easter Monday for the Stockley Park 10k. This is an off-road race organised by Purple Patch Running mainly on trails and footpaths of Stockley Park golf course.

We arrived about an hour before the start, registered and took in the idyllic surrounding area. The start/finish line was just opposite a lake with eight synchronized swimmers legs. Weather was lovely - sunny and hot, music was playing - a good morning for a 10k. Before long we were off - 1st k was on road through a business park and then we were onto the trail paths of the golf course. The route was described as undulating - this was not an understatement, we all are agreed the ups far outnumbered the downs with the biggest at 7k.

Underfoot conditions were tough - so I was always looking forward, planning out the smoothest route. Before long I was at the water station at halfway - cooled my legs, neck, rinsed my mouth - went to drink the remainder, tripped and dropped the water - DOH! - must be more careful in future.

Rest of the race I tried to maintain a good steady pace knowing I was on target for a SB. I distracted myself with the views of the golf course and lake. 9k marker - excellent 1k to go and back on roads. Cat cheering me on with 100m to go - saw the synchronized swimmers and nearly added a ninth leg. Across the finish line in just over 55mins.

Picked up a nice medal and a goody bag containing: Purell hygienic hand rub, Ecover fabric softener, body shop moisturiser and a four minute shower challenge timer. (Later found out the bags were left-overs from a recent water aid sponsored race).

Watched the presentations and then headed to the pub overlooking the lake for brunch. I wanted a healthy salad but had my arm twisted to join the ladies for a full English. Lorraine and I struggled to finish ours, however Cat licked the plate clean - uttering something about post marathon hunger..."

Mel reports: "........Compton 40 miles the next day was also very hot, It was a lovely course although quite hard. I was running through the woodlands in the last mile thinking how pretty the bluebells were whan I tripped and went headfirst into them, Luckily no one saw me, I picked myself up, and carried on running through the woodlands down the hill to the finish. My time was 8 hours 44.

Harewood Forest 7.5k XC

Results Index

Josh reports: "On Sunday 3rd April, I ran the 5th Harewood Forest XC in Wherwell, Hampshire. It is a local event, with the option of running either 7.5k or 11k.

It was a challenging off-road course with some testing hills - A kennel of bloodhounds gave me a surprise around the 2k marker, and we ran past an impressive looking paintball arena 5 mins later. At around 5k the course split with the 11k runners heading up another hill - I however turn off and headed for the finish enjoying a very refreshing (and much needed) downhill finish.

Most opted for the longer 11k which enabled me to finish 3rd overall and 2nd male back - just beating the first 11k runner by 30 secs!!

The organisers keep the website and event low key so don't publish results - my Garmin clocked me at 41.35"
