MUCKLE Toon Joggers Kirsty Ash, Pauline Irving and Mhairi Beattie ran the Ambleside 60k last Sunday.
This is the first year of this Ultra and was in celebration of the 60th year of The Climbers Shop, Ambleside.
Kirsty said: “We set off from Rothay Park and into our first climb up onto Loughrigg within minutes.
“We headed over to Coniston and up above the copper mines before heading down to Little Langdale.
“This is when the route started to get tough, with climbs up over Stake Pass and Lining Crag.
“We had four checkpoints en route and they were well stocked with food and drink, including sticky toffee pudding.
“Alan Miller and Doug Irving were at the final checkpoint to cheer us on before we headed to the finish line.
“We ran 37.5 miles in total, with more than 7,000 feet of climbing. We were very lucky with the weather and were truly spoilt with the views, which helped to distract us from the pain.
“This was my sixth Ultra and Pauline and Mhairi’s first, but not their last. Pauline signed up a few months ago because she wanted a challenge to celebrate her 50th birthday.
“Mhairi signed up only five days before the event but had done many of the long training runs with us.
“We finished in 11 hours 45 minutes which was well within the 14-hour time limit.”
