Over recent years more and more club members have been taking on ultra-distance challenges. Ros Blackmore, who ran coast to coast over 5 days in 2020, has just completed her longest continuous run over an incredible 100 miles.
"Massive thanks to my wonderful support team for helping me to achieve my long held goal of completing a 100 mile run. I travelled the Lady Anne's Way from Skipton to Penrith in one go (33.5hrs) snatching an hours sleep on the way. It was a fantastic journey and wouldn't have been possible or half as enjoyable without them. So, many thanks to Neil (road support, cook, tea maker and carer) Mandy Goth (Skipton to Grassington), Simon Hewitt (Capplestone Gate to Cray), Stuart Clarkson (Cray to Hawes and unexpectedly again from Appleby to Penrith), Matt Neale (around Hawes), Jess Ann (night section from Hawes to Kirkby Stephen) and Ben Mounsey and Kirsty Hall for coming out to cheer me on in Grassington. Lucky to have had superb weather throughout and not one blister!"
