Squirrels race round the Royal Parks
James Dalton and Jenny Wilkinson headed to London to take part in the stunning Royal Parks Half Marathon that winds its way through four Royal Parks. James ran to raise money for Caffod in an impressive time of 1:34:05, especially as he went into the race with a slight knee injury but is hopeful he hasn't made it worse. Jenny Wilkinson also raced round in 1:47:58 and said "Such a lovely run in the sunshine!"
Cani-Trail Ultra 50k
Jill Tooley-Boys and Anna Gibson took on the mighty Cani-Trail Ultra 50k up in the Welsh mountains near Llanharan with their incredible furry sidekicks Lulu and Flora. Jill reported "We set off in the dark at 7am and soon found ourselves running literally in the clouds with 10m visibility at some points. It was a pretty brutal course with steep and stony ascents and descents, plus the odd bog and a few stiles thrown in for good measure (always tricky with a dog attached to you!). We finished a respectable 7h 40m and both in one piece – not bad considering I forgot to pack my trail shoes and had to run the whole thing wearing someone else’s shoes!"
Lindsey and Viv's Australian trip near it's end, so this is "The final one". Loved reading these!
"As it was our last Saturday in Australia, we wanted to do a parkrun. As usual we had to work out the logistics of finding a parkrun nearby we can get to and checking timings with our itinerary. Fortunately we have a car at the moment so a parkrun 20km away was doable. With a 7am start we were on the road by 6.15 and easily found the location in Urunga. A beautiful setting with a river, beach and boardwalk over the mangroves. After the large gathering of 400plus runners in Centennial Park last week, this week it was back to a field of 40 runners. As always we were made very welcome and asked the standard question “have you done Bushy?”
Another lovely Parkrun completed. It’s been a lovely way of doing some running on our trip and meeting lots of very friendly people."
