I hear there has been some running this weekend! After the success in speedwork at the cross country last weekend, this week has been all about enjdurance! There are too many success stories to mention every individual, but a few highlights to note –
In Durham, at the Runners of the Lost Ark event, there was a large Strider contingent, with many significant distance PBs achieved. In particular I would like to mention Natalie Bell, as for those who aren’t on Facebook may not know, was running the event for charity and her sister, and completed an incredible 37.2 miles and raised over £1000 – all your training and hard work has certainly paid off! If you would like to read Natalie’s story, have a look at her just giving page.
Over in Ireland, The Scott family were also running laps for many hours! Whilst keeping Stuart company at the Atlas Running Last One Standing event, Susan covered 50 miles, and Stuart kept going just a little longer and achieved a top ten finish, completing 120 miles in 28 hours! That’s 4 miles, every hour, on the hour…
In Seville, Dougie and Stephen were enjoying the sun – or not, while they completed the Seville Marathon. Some holiday!
