Glasgow to Edinburgh Ultramarathon

09/04/2011

The Glasgow to Edinburgh ultramarathon took place on Saturday 9th April. Starting at Ruchill Park in Glasgow for the 9am kick off the 78 competitors travelled along the Forth and Clyde canal towards the Falkirk Wheel and then changed to the Union canal towards Edinburgh.

In total the runners had to cover 56 miles of varied terrain but as long as they kept the canal on their right hand side navigation was the least of their worries. Representing DRC Frank Skachill was apprehensive about taking part in such a daunting challenge and in the first few miles was unsure if his body could stand up to such a relentless event. Supported by Stephen Mohan who kept him fed and watered at the various check points Frank grew in confidence and settled into the rhythms of the race. Using a system of 300 metres of running followed by 100 metres of walking in the latter stages he caught and overtook many and completed a well planned exercise in pace judgement to finish in 9 hours 55 in an excellent 20th place which should give him renewed confidence for future planned ultra races.
