Clyde Stride Ultramarathon

21/07/2012

On Saturday 21st, Susan Gallagher lined up with 120 other runners at the start of the 40 miles multi terrain Clyde Stride ultramarathon...

The first 10 miles of the race are on flat road and take the runners from Partick to the outskirts of Glasgow.The route then follows the Clyde Walkway on an undulating mixture of trail, cross country and road to the finish at New Lanark.

Susan ran strongly for the first half of the race, passing through the 19 mile checkpoint in 3 hours 14 minutes. From that point the route became hillier and muddier and Susan found that despite enjoying it, tiredness set in more quickly than expected. After some tough miles from 24-27, Susan found renewed strength and focus, running well in the last 12 miles to overtake 6 runners before finishing at New Lanark in 7 hours 38 minutes.

The winner was Donnie Campbell in 5 hours 5 minutes, with first lady being Charlotte Black in 6 hours 6 minutes.
