A good result and a thumbs-up for the Downslink Ultra last weekend from Maria Pali:
‘Downslink Ultra yesterday. Very pleased to be 8th woman and 25/88 overall. What a lovely day it was! Really recommend this event to anyone starting to dip their toes into ultra distance. They even had vegan chilli to eat at the end – just what was needed!
.. it starts Guildford at the stunning St Martha’s Hill on the North Downs and then heads south to Shoreham. It follows the Downslink Way which is an old railway track so mostly flat. 38 miles and honestly I didn’t find it too much harder than one of the tougher marathons. We were blessed with fine weather which helped too!’
