Last weekend I had opportunity to go along and be support crew for Pip as she took on her first ultra marathon and first 100km run. Keeping water bottles topped up, cheering on runners and running back along sections of the course to keep Pip company, it was a brilliant experience and I captured the race in a series of photos.
Last weekend I headed up to the Lake District for Mountain Run's Ultra Trails weekend. The training weekend is run by Charlie Sproson, an accomplished mountain leader and coach with multiple Bob Graham Rounds, a Charlie Ramsay round and Dragons Back race all on his running CV.
Last weekend saw the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc, more commonly known as the UTMB, roll into Chamonix as the world's best ulta-trail runners took to the Alpine trails, battling it out for the top spots.
