THE RUNDOWN – 27TH NOVEMBER: CYPRUS 4-DAY CHALLENGE, DORSET JURASSIC COAST ULTRA, COOMBE 8, & PARKRUN

Cyprus 4-day Challenge & Dorset Jurassic Ultra

Linda and Keith Whitehead have just completed this staged ultra-running event based in Paphos, Cyprus, covering a distance slightly longer than a marathon, which includes road, trail and cross-country running, with 4 different races taking place during 4 days (a 6k time trial, an 11k mountain trail run, a multi-terrain half marathon distance and a 10k City Run over the four days. Big well done to Linda who won her age group prize too!

On the subject of Ultras, but closer to home and much less warm, congratulations also to Mick Williamson and Paul Baker for completing the endurance life Dorset Ultra on the scenic and very hilly Jurassic coast, both running and finishing together in an excellent time of 7 hours and 10 minutes
