Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October London South East Spartan Trifecta Weekend @ Nutley, East Sussex

The "Beast" race 13 miles with 30 obstacles and 2,425ft of elevation. Conner Wickens finished in 2:22:35 - age group winner.

In the "Super" race 10K with 25 obstacles and 968ft of elevation Conner finished in a time of 1:08:36 - age group winner.

Then later that afternoon Conner ran in the sprint race which was "more of a shake out".

You can see the results from this event here.

 

Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st October Wales Spartan Trifecta Weekend @ Crickhowell in the Brecon Beacons

Conner followed up the achievements above by competing again this time in Wales, running in the Beast 21K on Saturday and coming first in his age group in a time of 2:37:26, followed up by the Super 10K on Sunday and finishing first in his age group in a time of 1:26:32. Conner also ran in the sprint, and I'm guessing that this was again a shake out!

You can see Conner's Spartan profile here.

 

Saturday 30th October @ Weymouth Park Run (Lodmoor Country Park)

Sunday 31st October Halloween Marathon

Kate had great fun walking through the city and seeing some of London in the evening. Kate found that there were no night underground services or trains to go home, so hubby came to the rescue! Only 11 marathons to go until Kate reaches her 100!
