Race Roundup #22 – 21/04/2019

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’ve got a double race roundup for you today. Rewinding back to Saturday 13th, Rob and Linda were in the Lakes running the Hawkshead Trail 16k.

Well done! Further afield, James Scully was in Paris to...

Race Roundup #19 – 17/03/2019

You may have heard that one or two MFRs are doing the Manchester marathon this year, and in time honoured tradition a whole bunch of you travelled up to Lancaster to do the Trimple 20 mile race as a final test before the big run itself. Following a collision on the motorway (not involving any MFR), it was touch and go as to whether everyone would make it, but everyone did, including, James M, Thomas, Blair, Andrew F, Joe, Jacqui,...
