Exmoor Ultra. 2nd July 2011. 40 miles of very hilly, undulating coastal path on a very warm and sunny day.
4/30 approx            9 hours and 20 minutes.        Bernard Genge  (1st 50+ Vet) 
An epic challenge and an outstanding result for Bern following months of hard training in the sun, rain and cold. Bern has regularly put in 100+ mile training weeks but even he couldn't have expected to be on his feet for over nine hours! Awesome at last seems like a fitting word.
Bern tells me that navigation was tricky and that at the half way point he was supprised to learn he was in the lead because the leading pair took a wrong turn. He then later got lost, putting him back in 7th place where he worked his way back up to 4th. His final Garmin distance was 43 miles.
Many thanks to all those who supported Bern on the day, his parents, Emma and Craig and sat nav Gordy, and during his training.

       
On the way to back to Porlock.     With his Mum and Dad at 27 mile checkpoint.  With Emma at Bossington.
   
33.5 miles Bossington.                At last......the finish. Now who's got the cider?

Boddington Marathon. 26th June 2011. Flat multi-lap road race. Sunny and 32 degrees C.
7/109                3:34.44                Bernard Genge (1st in cat)
Bern showing his class again only starting this as a training run but going on to finish in a respectable time in very testing conditions. Richard Clifton and Dave H pulled out after 10 miles along with a large number of other runners (51 non-finishers). The winners time was 3:07. The 50k (32.5 miles) race had 10 finishers and 7 non-finishers with the 1st male in 3:23 and 1st woman (3rd overall) in 3:32. 
    
   Bern picking up his category prize and finishing.

10k on and off road and quite South Downs Marathon. 11th June 2011.
Recently converted marathon man Nick Daniels has been in action again.
Official results: 94/509        3:50.28
Nick writes: "Hi was in action sat 11/6/11 south downs marathon 26.2 M/T

Group B Race 4h+ Times, Started as last over line,Time Approx 3.51, ?/? proper time & placing to follow when results from chips On Website, difficult to tell position as 5hour+ group left 20 mins before and relay race 20 mins before that, then elite men/woman 20 mins behind us, did catch a lot of first wave and some relay people and held off advances of all but about dozen of elite.
All but about half mile off road, rutted lanes, forest, fields, rough gravel track all the way. Basically its Run in the Wild course over marathon distance but slightly tougher going.

6 very very big steep hills in this, I ran up all but only just, took a lot of grit to keep going up this stuff and I thought I was strong on the hills. See you Tues."  Sounds like a very decent time on such a tough course. Well done Nick.

Pirates Half Marathon. 21km. South Africa. 20th February 2011. Very hilly.
No results yet. Email from Mick reads "Sunday morning I ran the ”toughest half marathon in South Africa” the Pirates 21, all races are graded, 1 is flat and fast, 5 is hard and hilly, this one is 5, I think it should be 6! Three steep hills before halfway, then a massive climb to the top of North cliff hill at 14 km, the highest point in Johannesburg, and a fantastic view over the whole city. We, Beth and I finished in about 2.30, (I did it in 1995 in 2.19) not bad for the course, and again in the top half. I was shattered at the finish, not injured but just very weary. They have a “King of the mountain” prize for the first runner to the top at 14 km, he ( a white guy!) did it in 48 min, and the overall winner (a black guy!) did it in 68 min!"
