Race date: Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July 2017
This 9th run was held (as usual) at Catton Park – close to Walton on Trent which in turn, is a bit south of Burton on Trent. The race is “… an off-road [10k] relay race against the clock. The event, already tough and mentally challenging in good conditions, was made all the harder by torrential rain, but it was an experience not to be missed. …” It also lasts for 24 hours!

It’s worth a look at Kevin and John’s results; they came in position 10 out of 15 and completed 12 laps (that’s a whole lot of kilometres) between them in 23:30:38. Amazing.
