Dusk Till Dawn

Date:
28/07/2018
Country:
Manvers Lake, Wath upon Dearne, West Yorkshire
Distance:
Ultra, Enduro
This is an endurance event that is suitable for runners of varying ability. The concept is simple, you run as many 3.21 mile laps of Manvers Lake, near Wath-Upon-Dearne, as you can between 6pm on Saturday and 6am on Sunday. Between these times you can start when you want and finish when you want. You can take a break at any point have a rest and then complete more laps later, it is entirely up to you. The course is flat, all off road on footpaths with no road crossings. If you are intending to run through the night you will need a good head torch as the course is mostly unlit.

In short:
A lovely, small and friendly event. Managed 12 laps (38.25 miles) which is the furthest I’ve ever run. The 5 min run/5 min walk strategy worked a treat. After a brief rest I tackled the final two laps as a walk/shuffle strategy as my quads had turned to concrete and every step was a pain-fest. Running through unlit woodland paths is quite an experience and the mind plays strange tricks. Funniest thing I saw was a giant willy spray painted on a rock. Well at least that would ensure nobody tripped over it! Coming down stairs tomorrow will be interesting. Anyone got a Stannah stairlift I could borrow?
