Hi all,

Just wanted to plug this new ultra race I'm helping organise.

The race is on Saturday 29th September 2007 and is a scenic 30mile trail race along the canal between Stratford upon Avon and Birmingham.

Also available as a 3 x 10mile relay event.

Further race info is on the site here:

TRA Permit has now been received for this event, so it's all kosher.

I've run along part of the route before and it can be quite pleasant....wouldn't mind doing the run sometime but not this year I'm afraid.
Good luck to you all.

Well the event went off without a hitch, the weather was kind and everyone had a great day.

Results are up here.. relay results & splits to follow shortly.

And yes that 3:08 for the winner, 2 minutes ahead of the leading relay team.

Yup it's an impressive time alright... but it was expected... he's local and quick!

It seems likely we'll run it again next year, a few lessons learned behind the scenes.

Entries were good thanks, assuming we have all the cash ;)

ah.. i should say... there's a relay option too so if you fancy a day out with a couple of friends you could do 10miles each.
