This week saw a gradual change on weather conditions with milder temperatures and some rain prevailing just in time for a weekend dominated by off-road action… Starting at Frimley Lodge Parkrun on Saturday morning, twelve Sandhurst Joggers  braved muddy conditions in stark contrast to the previous week and PBs were unlikely however strong performances throughout with […]

Country to Capital 45m Ultra put to bed -Max Woods reports…

This one had been bugging me – I had previously successfully completed it in 2012 (well, I arrived alive at the end within the cutoff anyway), but it was also the first time I ever had a DNF, in 2014 dropping out half way in, completely wasted. It is definitely a race of two halves […]
