Good evening Race Report fans! Hopefully you managed to enjoy some dry running at some point this weekend, after a distinctly soggy start yesterday.

Today’s spooky Race Report starts off with some terrifyingly good results from last week. Cath Holloway returned to ultra-marathoning at the Humanity Direct Ultra on 22 October, finishing the 32 miles in 5hrs 17mins and finishing 3rd female. Well done, Cath!
The following day Fabian Downs took the title and the course record at the Burnham Beeches 10k, finishing in 34.44.
Once again, some of Chiltern Harriers AC’s ultrarunners have been in action this weekend, putting us mere mortals to shame with their feats of derring-do.
We’ll kick things off with Ali Young. Ali finished 18th overall and the first of Team GB’s ladies at the IAU European 24 hour Championships in Albi, France. Ali covered 214km over 24 hours – that’s a staggering 133 miles. We’re really proud (and slightly terrified) of you Ali. Well done!
