Borrowdale Fell Race 2013

Another superb race report by club member Alan Wallace. I had been looking forward to this race for a while. 17 Miles of tough, high level Lakeland terrain with 6500ft of ascent.

Donostiako Maratoia – Donostia/San Sebastian Marathon, 25th Nov

Continuing his challenge of doing marathons in cities with two names (Turku/Abo in Finland in June) November found Colin Dilks in southern Europe, and here’s his race report.
