Press Report: Michael Runner-up in Lockdown Race

MICHAEL YOUNG has finished runner-up in the Ultrarace Romania Lockdown event.

The West Cheshire Athletic Club member completed a 70km distance in four hours three minutes and 49 seconds at  5.36mph, behind eventual winner, Stefu Lucian Mihalta

He completed the six-stage fixture with split times of 34:24 (10km stage one), 41:30 (12km stage two), 37:53 (11km stage three), 72:11 (20km stage four), 31:06 (9km stage five), and 26:45 (8km stage six).

Young, who raised Β£2,000 for the National Health Service on his 33rd birthday earlier in the month after completing 69 miles in just under 12 hours on a treadmill at his home, is now focusing his sights on the GB Ultras Chester 100 miles Race scheduled to be held in November.

ENTRIES are still being accepted for the Cheshire County Virtual Road Race Championships. Further details can be found on this link.

THE popular Race The Train fixture at Tywyn, Mid-Wales, scheduled to be held on August 15 has been cancelled because of the Covid-19 crisis.

Runners who have already booked will have their entries and train ticket orders automatically transferred to 2021 and receive an e-mail from FR Systems giving further details. Any deferrals from the 2019 event will be valid for 2021. Entries will open soon for next year’s event which will be held on Saturday, August 21.
