John Muir Way 50K Ultra Saturday, April 1, 2017

This is a fab little race. The John Muir Way Ultra Marathon is run on
‘East Lothians most stunning and iconic coastal stretches, rural landscapes and woodland trails. The route will begin at Port Seton Promenade and primarily follow the well-established John Muir Way. Meandering through a number of historic towns and villages including Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick with the race finishing at FoxTrail HQ; Foxlake Adventures, Dunbar.’
I really enjoyed it this year and knocked a few minutes off last years time so well happy. We got medals this time as last year a few entrants complained about the lack of a momento, its nice to know runners wishes have been taken on board by the organisers.

Out of 153 runners:

Place Bib Name Age Gender Time

36 98 Sadie Kemp 40 Female 4:44:44.2
67 162 Tracy Philp 44 Female 5:09:08.5

    It was a great thing to be part of but unfortunately way too flat for me. I thought there would be a lovely East Coast breeze to keep me cool to help me through the miles but barely a breath of wind. Being more positive, it was a great way to see the East Coast and gain the milage 🙂

    Well done to you all, I’m in awe of the psychological strength and willpower required to get you through these ultra events.

    Like the way you refer to this as a “little” race! Well done everyone- superb running from all you ultra nutters 🙂
