Club runners Lena Conlin and Stuart Black completed the Hardmoors 50 Ultra Marathon last weekend. Both runners are very experienced at these very long distance races, but the weather made this one particularly challenging – gale force winds combined with torrential rain (and therefore lots and lots of mud!) meant that they had to work extra hard for everyone of those 50 miles.
Stuart completed the ultra in 14:25:13 finishing in 161st place, with Lena in 183rd place in a time of 14:51:20. There were 287 finishers on the day. A huge well done to both!
