Going up!

Last week I said that  Nick Williams was about to take on the  UTMB OCC, a prestigious international event over 55km, through 3 countries and with 3,000 meters+ of elevation gain. Well Nick did amazingly well and was the 5th UK national to finish in 7:32:46. He was 28th in category and 10th in gender  Results.

Meanwhile, Ros & Jo are tackling the Trans Alpine Run, an eight-day journey across the Alps over 290 kilometres and 17,320 m of positive vertical (vs. 15,730 m of cumulative descent). They are raising monies for MS via JustGiving
