ARGH!

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

At the fourth at­tempt, Adam Perry failed to beat the Lake District 24 Hour record. Inov-8 am­bas­sador Adam came ag­o­nis­ingly close to Mark Hartell’s 20-year-old record of 77 peaks. The 29-year-old reached 78 sum­mits, but made it back to Moot Hall, Keswick, in 24hr 15min.

Spine Race-winner Tom Hollins at­tempt to break Nicky Spinks’ Dou­ble Bob Gra­ham record ended in de­feat. The Inov-8 am­bas­sador be­came un­well after com­plet­ing one an­ti­clock­wise Bob Gra­ham (in 22:19) and sum­mit­ing three peaks on his sec­ond cir­cuit.

David Mitchell’s at­tempt to run a Dou­ble Cotswold Way (102 miles), to cel­e­brate his 50th and raise money for a can­cer char­ity, ended just short, due to heat-re­lated prob­lems. He man­aged 166 miles in 42 hours.
