Phil Gray reports:

'What a spiritual experience as Colworth played host to the annual Colworth Marathon Challenge held over three days and addressing the marathon distance in three stages: a 5 miles multi-terrain race - a 8.1 miles trail race and concluding with a multi-terrain 13.1 miles. It was good to see so many Harriers addressing the Colworth 5, while the Colworth 8.1 trail race was an equally demanding event for all participants. Kevin Willett stealing the show with a winning performance in 50.32 and well supported by Rob Miller, Donna McEwen and Stuart Trevallion as they secured the team prize. Kevin had the overall lead at this stage and further results will tell if he was the overall winner. A seriously hot day on Saturday for yours truly and a lot of other people who made the whole thing possible and great to capture some magical images on camera. Well done to all who went the distance over the weekend and thanks to Kevin and Andrea Ward who as well as lending me a functional digital camera were  attempting to complete the Colworth Marathon Challenge at the first attempt. Thanks to all who helped out over the weekend and a special thanks to the Colworth Massive led by Tony Dadd et al. A cracking weekend was the end result.'
