Ridgeway 40


Grantham Running Club’s Nev Chamberlain ran his first ultra distance event at last weekends Ridgeway 40. The linear course covers the westernmost 40 miles of the Ridgeway National Trail starting in Wiltshire at Overton Hill and finishing beside the River Thames at Goring in Oxfordshire.

Having never previously run more than 28 miles, Nev settled into a steady pace and was pleased with his finishing time of 8 hours 30 minutes. Afterwards he said that he'd had a couple of miles around the 30 mile mark where he'd struggled but luckily got a second wind and had a decent run into the finish.
