I did the Sandstone Trail Challenge on saturday, a LDWA event with a runners class – more like an unofficial ultra, 33 miles from Whitchurch to Frodsham along the length of the trail. Conditions were just about perfect with low temperatures and the odd shower during the day.
There was a field of approx 100 runners starting out along the trail with a large contingent of Delamere Spartans running. The first over the line was David Douglas in a time of 4:51. I finished in a more modest time of 7:50 for 87th position which was exactly 30 minutes quicker than my time from last year!
A good, low key event for cutting your teeth on Ultra distances.
