Congratulations Mike Bullock and Susan Mansfield - NHRR Squirrels of the Month for February 2020
Endurance athletes Mike and Sue are February's worthy winners of 'The Squirrel'.
Their passion for very very long off road runs dressed as super heroes would be enough to secure them this prize, but what makes them truly exceptional and as hard as nails is that there appears to be no conditions too tough for these two.
When Storm Ciara swept across the whole of the UK bringing heavy rain with widespread gusts of 70 - 80 mph, running events were cancelled across the country due to health and safety concerns.
Obviously endurance events are less concerned with the safety of their runners as Mike and Sue completed the Leicester Round Ultra trail race consisting of 58km of pure mud, big hills and ploughed fields. Their achievement was truly super human and gave the race reporter for that week something to write about on what would been a damp squib of a weekend,
Squirrel of the month
