CONGRATULATIONS 2017 PILGRIMS!
A MASSIVE Thank you to everyone who took part in this weekend’s Pilgrim Challenge — what an outstanding weekend of inspirational efforts and beautiful trails. Well over 200 runners and walkers joined us for the 9th Pilgrim Challenge for a weekend of taking in some series ultra miles across North Downs Way. It was a superb way to kick off the year, with an amazing effort by all.
A huge well done to all that finished and our winners! Our leading men were Paul Fernandez with 1st place in 8hrs 43mins, 2nd was Dudley Desboriugh in 9hrs 14mins and Andrew Fargus came in 3rd in 9hrs 18. The leading females were Melissa Venables taking 1st place with 9hrs 57mins, a second for Sarah Hill in 10hrs 02mins and Katherine Barrett was 3rd in 11hrs 25. Provisional results for everyone are now up here.
