Extreme Energy’s intro ultra-event attracted 277 entrants, many of them novices at both longer distances and trail running, along with a sizeable group of regular ultra-runners looking for a new challenge. The course started and finished in Princes Risborough and took the competitors on a tour of sections of the beautiful national trail, local footpaths and bridleways in the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, along with some spectacular views from the tops of the hills. Fine weather and warm sunshine added to the challenge presented by the course and some amazing personal performances were recorded right across the field, from the first finishers to the very last.
Ian Hammett and Gemma Carter were first male and female home in 4 hrs 14 minutes and 4 hours 37 minutes respectively, with Ian setting a new course record.
