Slawek and Imogen took on Barry & John’s Backyard Ultra on Saturday. The format requires each runner to complete a 4.1 mile loop every hour and be ready on the start line to begin the next loop. The event continues until there is one runner remaining. Huge well done to Slawek for completing 11 loops (45 miles) and to Imogen who clocked up 18 loops (73 miles). This was a big test of determination along with physical and mental endurance and it is great to see the club participating in these types of events.
