John Duffy made the trip to Hamilton for the Chatelherault Country Park Inaugural 6 hour ultra distance Trail Race. An all terrain race, consisting of individuals running as far as possible and relay teams of two doing alternative laps each. The laps were approx 6 k  (closer to 5.5K) and for last 45 minutes on completion of the big lap a grass loop of 700m with a bit of a climb.
John was first in the individual race with only one Relay Team in front of him and covered a distance of 40.3 miles. Well done John
