Hi everyone, thought i would write on here about a run which myself and 3 other team members completed on saturday the 14th june as i dont think it has much press amongst runners.
The event is called Trailwalker, it is a 62 mile race across the south downs from just below Petersfield to Brighton Racecourse. Anyone from a walker to a runner can enter and it raises money for the Gurkha Welfare Trust and Oxfam.
Our team came 5th overall and finished the run in 12 hours 47 minutes. Before the run the most i had ever ran was 28 miles, even now i cant believe i ran 62 miles over undulating ground and at times during thunderstorms! This was the most gruling thing i have ever done however it really made me think about running in a whole new way.
I urge any long distance runners or even just keen runners to give this one a go.
I would love to hear from other runners who have ran this race and what they thought of it?
