Starting from the edge of Wootton, near Bedford, this winter half marathon took our #greenarmy runners on an undulating one lap course. Passing through the villages of Astwood and Cranfield and along open country lanes, the cold winter chill did not stop our hardy runners enjoy some fantastic running over these 13.1 miles.
Well done all!

Paras 10 Hell Down South

Results – Paras 10 Hell Down South (Longmoor Camp, Hampshire), 18/11/17 – Chris Walls 2:01:07, Nigel Walls 2:13:52 (35lb tab).
This pair of #teameye runners meant business on their outing to the Paras 10 ‘Hell Down South’ event. This tough 10-mile course over military land featured the infamous Bog of Doom, Lucifer’s Lido and the Hills of Hell. With plenty of water, dry-ice and mud along the way to add to the challenge, not forgetting Nigel’s 35lb tab he was carrying too! A superb day of running for #teamwalls with Chris finishing 11th overall & Nigel taking the 2nd place Veteran spot and 15th place overall in the tab category.
Well done #teamwalls!

Escape from Meriden 24-hour Ultra

Results – Escape from Meriden 24-hour ultra, 18/11 – Lee Whitton 1st place and 100 miles (as the crow flies!)
As challenges go, this must be one of the craziest! Starting at midnight, at the very centre of England at the stone cross at Meriden, runners had 24 hours to escape as far as they could from the village in any direction. After meticulous planning, and with a superb support crew, #teameyerunner Lee headed south through the counties of Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire before completing his 24-hour run just north of Shaftesbury in Dorset, a full 121 miles in total! An absolutely awesome achievement!
Well done Lee!
