Trio of Inzpire Staff Tackle Dukeries 40 Mile Ultra-marathon

Last weekend, three of the Inzpire team for ‘The Wall’ ultra-marathon took part in the Dukeries 40; their longest training event yet, both in terms of mileage and time on the run!

Dan Simmons, Rich Havercroft and Sophie Paul tackled the 40 mile course, which started in the heart of Sherwood Forest and took them past Creswell Crags, through Clumber Park and back to Sherwood Forest through the Nottinghamshire countryside.

Dan and Rich completed the gruelling course in 8:50:21; with Sophie steaming ahead and finishing a whole second quicker in 8:50:20! The image shows the trio seconds away from crossing the finishing line, which, we can only assume, despite their run through Nottinghamshire countryside, was probably the most beautiful thing they’d seen all day.

The team will now go back to their training after a couple of days rest, ready for the big 69 mile ultra-marathon on June 18th.
