On Saturday, a number of FoTers headed down to the coast to run in the CTS Sussex. Eimear Toomey took on the 10k distance (which was actually 12.4k) and seemed to enjoy storming down the hills. Jonathan Furuya and Sophie Tabor took on the half marathon distance, while Guido Hakkenberg and Nick Van Praag stormed through the ultra distance race. Guido summed up his thoughts on the race afterward: “Yeah I loved it, when you’re running 55k up and down the cliffs with snow blasting your face the trick is to take it not too seriously.”
On Sunday morning, Amy Ellerker travelled over to Hampton Court to run the Hampton Court Palace Half, coming in 9th woman and posting an impressive new PB despite the snow and mud.
Meanwhile, over in the Netherlands, Ben te Beek raced the Stevensloop Half Marathon.
