Ashby 20 miles

Results – Ashby 20 miles (Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire), 19/3/17 – Lee Whitton 2:29:51, Matt Buller 2:29:57, Sharon Stancer 4:02:23.
The Ashby 20 has a reputation as a thoroughly testing route. Rural and undulating is how it is often described, with several inclines to test the stamina of a runner. Well the #greenarmy runners did themselves proud and passed the testing 20 miles of Ashby with flying colours. Top running all round!
Well done all!

Quiet roads, undulating footpaths, farm tracks, grassy fields and wind; there was a bit of everything today and of course 13.1 miles full of #greenarmy determination and a lot more wind!
Well done all!
