CROYDON ULTRA 30 MILE RACE REPORT

The 2014 Croydon Ultra 30 mile race took place today in drizzly but warm conditions. David Ross took out the win and a new course record in 3:48. The women’s race was won by Alice Addison in a time of 4:31 and a new women’s course record and placing 7th overall.

Over an undulating first five miles the 48 starters had firm footing and the pace could quicken along the country road sections for the first fifteen mile lap. With checkpoints at every 7.5 miles the runners were able to take on board much needed food and hydration as the rain went away and was replaced by warm cloudy conditions.
