RSE Club Report – ‘Tis the Season for Parkruns and Ultras!

50k WinterCross

Starting at the Meon Hall in Meonstoke, the WinterCross consists of 3 out and backs along different terrains. The challenge is to finish before dusk on one of the shortest days of the year… and run after all of the Christmas food!

Running for RSE were Mark Manley and Lesley Hinsley – it was Lesley’s 2nd ultra after completing her 1st in only November, whilst Mark rounded off the year with his 10th ultra!

Mark and Lesley completed the course in a brilliant time of 5:58:53!

We beat the cut off for the 70k by 15 mins but took over 10 minutes making up our minds whether to call it a day so the time is 10 minutes quicker! Lots of water, mud, rain, wind and hills sapped us.

Lesley has done amazing. She did her first ultra in November, just one month after smashing her marathon PB at Manchester and today was her furthest ever distance.

Mark Manley

It was fab. Really enjoyed it. Very, very wet, muddy, rainy and cold. We set off to do 70k with the option of bailing at 50k. We did meet the cut off by 20 min and set off to do the last 20k but them bailed ( a bridge too far in the bad conditions). Only 28 runners went on to do the last 20k! I finished 4th in my age group! A great course and I would do it again… and a great medal!

Lesley Hinsley

Incredible running from both of you!
