Congratulations to both John Bateson & Robert Crussell who have quietly gone about their build-up to the North Down Way 100 miles and 50 miles respectively, held on 11 / 12 August. We await any feedback from John & Robert otherwise John finished the 100 miles in 23 hours 50 minutes and Robert the 50 miles in 11 hours 4 minutes. Both courses started at Farnham in Surrey, the 50 miles ending at Knockholt, Kent (edge of south-east London) and the 100 miles at Wye near Ashford in Kent.

For Robert, the 50 miles is part of his build-up to this weekend’s Ridgeway Challenge covering 85 miles in stages. Best of luck Robert with the British weather!
