White Rose Ultras

(Posted 6 Nov)

Ultra distance running seems to be catching! Simon Bennett and Tim Ashby tackled the tough moorland 60 mile course. Simon is an experienced ultra running and finished in 13th place. Tim was tackling his first ultra and did really well to pass the half way point before having to retire - his body had apparantly become deleted of alcohol and he was missing Gemma. Well done Tim - we know you'll not let it lie there! Mock Wigglesworth took the more sensible choice of the 30m route and fonished well.
