Results for the Coast to Coast Ultra – 6-7.8.16

Dave Fawkner took part in this 140 mile challenge which is the first non-stop footrace across the UK from coast to coast.  The route starts in the North West at Whitehaven dock and follows the C2C cycle route.  Runners have just 38 hours to complete the route (with some heavy off road sections), traversing the hills of the Lake District and the Pennines to finally meet the North Sea at Tynemouth castle.  The route is a combination of country lanes, steep off road hills and cycle tracks.  Unfortunately Dave was unable to complete the whole race, but ran a fantastic 62 miles before retiring.
