Tring Ultra will be my 3rd Extreme Energy race. Pilgrims was my first ultra of the year. The Devils challenge (3 marathons in 3 days) is the first race I added to my already growing 2020 race calendar. Amersham Ultra was my first 50K in March last year, and Tring will now be my 12th so I am guessing I love the race organiser, the distance and the feel of a trail race without the time pressure of a road marathon.
And I have run this neck of the woods before, literally, with Berkhamstead, Wendover Woods and the Ridgeway familiar to me. So, with the added bonus of the fee going to Humanity Direct, it was a no brainer. I would be joined too by my dear friend Caroline who would be undertaking her first ultra at the age of 60 11 months after completing her first marathon in Chicago.
