Hurtwood 50K Ultra:

On Sunday 1st of December one Mounts Bay Harrier, Michael Rooney travelled to Dorking to take part in Freedom Racing Hurtwood 50k ultra trail race. This race started in Dorking and headed out to Winterfold Heath and did a 5-mile loop off the greensand way then went back the way they had just come. In this race was Leith Hill which is one of the highest hills in the south east, it also includes Holmbury hill and Pitch hill. The 50k race had a 10-hour cut off time, Michael completed this in a very respectable time of 5:59:25, he was very pleased to just get a sub 6-hour time considering it was only his second ultra at this distance.
Michael really enjoyed doing this race and commented the event was well supported and the aid stations where great, all the marshals and everyone watching were very encouraging. Michael would really recommend this race to anyone that enjoys a good tough trail race.
