ANOTHER DAY ON THE VANGUARD WAY!

I was out on the Vanguard Way section of the Croydon Ultra. It was looking really great, the trails are fine, the sun was out and there was plenty of shade in the woods.

You are all really going to love it out there !!!!

VANGUARD WAY SECTION

I was out on the Vanguard Way Section today. It was looking particularly lovely with the sun casting it rays through the woods. The trees, bushes and unfortunately some stinging nettles are out in full force. The footing was damp from the recent rain and a little muddy in sections but absolutely nothing of concern. A good road shoe would give ample grip.

I will be testing out other sections of the route over the next couple of weeks so watch out for updates.

 

 

 

2013 The Croydon Ultra

The date for the 2013 event is Sunday July 7th. You can enter online via the Runners World website at http://www.runnersworld.co.uk.

The 2013 edition of the race will be the third year of the event.  This 30 mile event is perfect for someone who has done a Spring marathon and wants to step up to their first Ultra.  The course is well marked and consists of two 7.5 mile out and back loops.  Checkpoints are at the 7.5 miles, 15 miles and 22.5 miles points.

This event is also perfect training for anyone doing a 50 mile or longer ultra event.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
