Striders in the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon

Results from the weekend’s Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon, where Chris Gill and Mick White were competing as a pair in the veteran category on the Wansfell course.

Saturday’s course (officially 16.8km with 1140m of climb) was completed in 7:43:45 in 16th position, and Sunday’s course (12km with 920m of climb) was completed in a time of 5:36:32 in 12th position. The veteran’s competition is a handicapped competition, where the time is adjusted based on the age of the competitors, so that gave them an adjusted time of 10:08:13 and an overall position of 13th in the category.
