Last year we managed to send an incredible 3 teams of 5 runners a piece to Ulverston to run the 72 miles of this iconic route through the heart of the Lakes to the spectacular finish at Carlisle Castle. Our A Team fought a fierce battle with a strong team from TriKudo who began plotting their revenge even before the 2014 event had finished! We are going to need to be at our best if we are to bring the title back to Wigan for the 2nd year running!
However, its not just about the front runners going for glory. We can send as many teams of 5 as we cam muster and intend to do exactly that. Competitors of all levels can take part in individual legs of 15 to 17 miles of beautiful Cumbrian trails. Team Manager Graham Millington will arrange the running order so that each of our teams are paired up so that no-one runs alone, (apart from Howard when he gets lost again…).
The race itself was a fabulous day out last year, but the numerous trips to Lakeland for recce runs were an adventure in themselves! Don’t miss out!
We don’t need a firm commitment to run just yet but anyone interested let Graham know so we can begin to get an idea of just how many teams we can send this year.
