HUR­RAH!

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

Andy Berry has run the sec­ond-fastest win­ter Bob Gra­ham Round. In Jan­uary, the Durham fell run­ner dashed round in 18:41, 23 min­utes be­hind Jim Mann’s record – 10 min­utes ahead of his own sum­mer time.

This Fe­bru­ary, Camille Herron set a new women’s course record on the Tarar­w­era Ul­tra­ma­rathon, New Zealand, in a time of 8:56:00, and Jim Walm­s­ley won with a men’s course record of 7:23:32.

Health cam­paigner Dr An­drew has raised over £170,000 for char­i­ties on record­break­ing runs.

Af­ter 52 years and 39 days, the world’s longest­known run streak ended in Jan­uary, when leg­endary road-run­ner Ron Hill, 78, fi­nally had a rest day.

Joe Labuschagne’s run across Africa has ended pre­ma­turely. His 12,000km, year-long mis­sion started in July. When he was di­ag­nosed with a stress frac­ture he con­tin­ued on a bike. But in Ethiopia, ‘the leg fi­nally gave up’.

A Hardrock 100 Mile En­durance Run fin­isher has started a law­suit against the hard-to-get-into race, claim­ing its lot­tery is il­le­gal. Aaron Den­berg aims “to [make it] truly open to all, and not just the select few.” Hardrock say Den­berg’s ac­cu­sa­tions are “rid­dled with fac­tu­ally wrong state­ments”.
