Helmeteer Ken Pyper took on the ‘Beyond the Far Side’ event held in Westbury last Saturday, another event entry donated to us by our friends at Crooked Tracks Wiltshire. The event takes in some parts of the Hilly Helmet course offering 24, 12, 6 hour and 10k event options. Oh, and mud, plenty of mud, much more than we have ever offered.
Runners taking the 6 hour option or upwards do laps, coming in for rests between as they wish. Ken took on the 12 hour event, completing over 37 miles and almost 6000 feet of climb over the laps he was able to complete over the time available. “I really enjoyed the challenge, and even managed a smile at the end” said Ken.
Once again, we’d like to thank Crooked Tracks Wiltshire donating the prize and for donating to our event once again this year for the 4th year running. Watch out for the prize in our draw leading up to our event in August.
