Yorkshire 3 Peaks
On Saturday 28th April Ian Bailey took on this classic Fell race in Yorkshire. Described as a marathon with mountains, it consists of 23 miles and 1600 metre of ascent and descent across the 3 summits of Pen Y Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside. Ian finished a very credible 9th in a time of 3:05:32 against some very stiff competition and sponsored athletes.
Sunday 29th April saw the annual Highland Fling take place in Scotland. This is a 53 mile ultra trail marathon taking in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs national park. NAC had 3 competitors taking on the challenge, none of them strangers to this sort of thing. Dominic McInerney and Stephen Wallace both finished in 10:40:24 followed shortly afterwards by Mark King in 11:17:23.
