Midnight Express

August 24, 2014

8 Woodwoses finished the Green Man Midnight Express on Saturday 23rd August. All the finishers were local runners who had already completed the challenge in daylight and many of them train on the course.

Running clockwise from Norton Malreward Village Hall, 10 set out, but two had to drop out.

The first to finish was Brian Robb in a time of of 7 hours 39 mins. Bill Graham and Martin Walker finished close together in 8 hours 32 mins and 8 hours 35 mins respectively. Guy Lucas and Claire Graham also finished close together an hour later (9 h 25 and 27 m) with Rob Dickson 6 mins later in (9 h 33 m). This was Rob Dickson’s eighth Green Man circuit this year! Another hour later author, Ira Rainey, led Jim White over the line at just over 10 h 30 m. Jim’s time was two hours quicker than h.is daylight attempt,

Excellent times all round – especially for a night run
