For those of you who are running a 10km, half marathon or maybe even a marathon for the first time and you have that thought of “How will I ever run that distance”….imagine how you get into the mindset of an ultra runner as he or she prepares for an eighty mile race.
Well we had both Jay Morfoot and Mark Milner in action this Saturday in the Hardwolds 80 which follows the Wolds Way from Hessle to Filey passing through chalk landscapes with dry valleys and stunning wildlife alongside market Towns and ancient villages such as Brantingham, Londesborough, Thixendale and the deserted medieval village of Wharram Percy, before arriving at the seaside resort of Filey.
Jay was first home of the two crazy’s finishing with a time of 15:40:46 for 16th place and first in his category. Mark another experienced campaigner who has gone through many tough situations over the years dug in to finish in a time of 20:28:27 for 79th position. Outstanding gentleman!
