Northants Ultra 35mi. 05/06/2016.
Race 5 of 12 in the 2016 Runfurther ultra-running championships.

The consistently hot weather west of the Pennines was mercifully attenuated by the easterly breeze and morning fog/low cloud, so we had a cool start. The sun didn't show itself until close to midday but the cloudless blue sky that followed remained bearable in the solar radiation department.

Race execution was expertly handled by Go Beyond Ultra, with well-placed aid stations, electronic timing with instant printout of splits, long-sleeved technical shirt and weighty finisher's gong with the route embossed upon it. They always seem to arrange perfect weather as well.
