It is with great sadness that I have to communicate the tragic early death of our revered member Martin Hulme, Tuesday 25 October.

Martin passed whilst doing that which he loved most - running in the hills.

All our thoughts are with Christine and Calum at this difficult time.

My last foray into 26+ miles

This was my final one. My 10th. Not a lot - but enough for me.....

I hadn't really done the training I should have- I was thinking that 3 long runs of just over 15 miles wouldn't quite cut it in the latter stages of the 26.2 miles I was about to undertake. She who makes a lovely cup of tea was kind of pleased. No more darting about trying to support and finding out that the helpful course map is never to scale, and that what looks like a short walk on the map actually turns out to be a marathon too!
