Great North Walk 100 miles
Some blokes believe they are good ultra trail runners, until they meet Sonia McDermott. The pocket rocket took no prisoners, smashing the field at this year's Great North Walk 100 mile race in 25 hours, 39 minutes - placing 7th overall!
Congratulations Sonia, you nutbag!
Running: How much is too much?
Runner's World asks: Will running too much kill you? That's a bit over the top but this is an interesting article about where our thresholds actually lie. Moderation, it seems, is the key to getting the most health benefits from our favourite athletic activity.

Parkrun Campbelltown is held every Saturday morning at Raby Oval at 7am. It's a great 5km course that is suitable for runners of all levels. It's also free! Click on this link for more info.
