At Burnham Beeches Susan Jarman was second lady in the 10k in 45.01, joined by fellow Harrier Steve Field in 56.01. Meanwhile, up in Yorkshire I was going (literally) up hill and down dale in the Punk Panther ‘A Short Circuit’ – a 50k trail ultra. With a few scenic detours, I was pleased to finish 3rd lady in a time of 6.00.49.
