On Sunday 22nd April, while the focus may have been on the London Marathon, a few of our members also took part in The Longhorn . This is an event which features 5K, 10K, half & full marathons and a 60K ultra set in the scenic surroundings of Sherwood Forest and Thoresby Park, not to mention a 19th century house as a backdrop.
With the sun blazing down, congrats to Debbie and Stuart, who finished the half in 2:02:14 and 2:08:54 respectively while Bryan attempted the 60K Ultra again. That’s right – again – after his endurance award winning performances in the event last year.
Unfortunately, but also probably quite smartly, Bryan decided to call it a day in the sweltering conditions after *only* 27 miles this year. While it may not officially go down in the results we of course will definitely commend and applaud the performance and will surely see more such feats in the future.
