Gloucester 50k – Sunday 14th January 2018

by Sam Amend - 14th January 2018 | General News

What can I say on a windy/cold day and feeling somewhat underprepared for 50k and nervous  I didn’t know what to expect.  We started with a false start and then had to get into my head on how I could tackle 5 laps and stay sane.  From the offset, I stayed in the first position and never looked back, when I struggled I knew others would be battling the 900+ ft of climb, the headwind, and lonely roads.

The best news was to top the finish off in one piece and on this course, solo run a course a pb for 50k 3hrs 30.56 and a win to top it off:…

More importantly, informed my time put me into the top ten ” all time” women’s 50k time.
