Cookiethon (King’s Wood, Kent)

Results – Cookiethon (King’s Wood, Kent), 15/6/16 – Lee Whitton, 43 miles in 7:28:06 (1st place).
5.3 mile laps on a challenging trail course and an 8 hour time limit. How far could you run? Well, Lee ran a long way. A very long way. 43 miles to be exact, and all the way into first place. Over 2,800ft of elevation was covered by Lee too on his many laps of the course. First ultra, first place. And the biggest medal we’ve ever seen.
Well done Lee!
