Wow - what a run from Lorraine Slater. She has certainly not spent the past 12 months of lockdowns sitting by the fire. This is a tough ultra race over forty five miles. Lorraine finished 6th overall, not just 6th in the ladies race, out of a total of 93 runners. Not only that, but she was just 3 seconds from coming home in 5th place. With a performance like that she naturally set a new course record. Over the years, we have got used to seeing some great performances from Lorraine and this has been another one to add to that long list.
Further down the field, John Boothman and Mark Storey both had a top twenty finish.
In the shorter 30 mile race, Tim Pigott took the honours coming home in first place.
