Kate Marshall was the sole runner for Grantham Running in the Joust 24hr on 25/26 June. With 12 and 24 hour options and solo and team events, there is lots of choice for the ultra fan.
The challenging endurance event is takes place on an undulating loop of approx. 5.5-mile through farmland and local villages at Holts Heath near Worcester, with participants completing as many loops as they can during the 12 or 24 hour period.
Having trained hard over the winter and spring, Kate opted for the 24 hour event and placed third in the women’s solo race and 9th solo overall, clocking 69.52 miles according to the official tally and receiving her first running trophy.
Kate was delighted with her performance, having previously struggled to exceed the 100k threshold in a 24 hour race due to injury problems.
