The Commonwealth Ultra Marathon Championships

September 21, 2009

The Commonwealth Ultra and Mountain Running Championships in Keswick have now concluded.  There were some absolutely superb performances by the English boys and girls.  My interest was centered around the 24hr and the 100km races.

Mens’ 24hr race results:

20 59.075 Orchard Scott 08/10/1972 AUS
21 10.684 McKenzie Alexander 19/11/1960 NZL

Team results:  Australia, England, Scotland I think…

Absolutely incredible performance from John Pares, Steve Mason and Chris Carver.  I suspect that Chris may be a little disappointed not to have got an individual medal – but he should be very proud indeed of this performance. Martin Fryer of Australia won with a very creditable mileage indeed.

This must bode well for a GB Team in the World Champs in Brive next year.  I wonder what the selection standard will be….. hmmmmm tough I bet.
