Dukeries 40

Saturday 4th May

The Dukeries 30 and 40 mile races start in the heart of Sherwood Forest and keep mostly to forest trails and footpaths. The route passes charming lodges, through Cresswell Crags and skirts the Welbeck Estate. It then crosses Clumber Park and through peaceful farm land before looping back to pass by the Thoresby Estate before returning to Sherwood Forest.

Both Rob and I signed up for the 40 mile race, and whilst this was my 7th time at this event it was Rob’s 1st ultra outside of doing 1-hour loops of a backyard event.

The race was won by Ste Lord (unattached), in a time of 5:18.47. First lady was Vicky Linfoot (Natural Bourne Runners), in a time of 6:58.18.
