For those who have not done the PECO races before they are a series of five cross country (trail) races held over the winter months. Race distances are between 4 and 5 miles. All races are chip timed. They are really nice races and there is a great atmosphere at every event. You will encounter plenty of mud, some hills and some rough bits but they are fantastic races and by taking part you help the club to keep its place in the league.

Robin Hood 100 – Race Report by Garth De Roux

I hadn’t intentionally set out this year to better 2015’s 12 marathons in 12 months but here I am 9 months into 2018 and I’ve got 9 ultra marathons under my belt with my next one on 13th October in the Lake District. September saw me bag the unsupported 100 mile finish I’d been targeting this year. It was my 3rd attempt after bailing out at half way at the Hardmoors 110 in May and coming up short with 80 miles in the heat of summer at Endure 24. The cooler September air, an improved (though still not perfect) eating strategy and pure bloody mindedness got me to the finish of the Robin Hood 100.
