‘The Wall’ Training goes European!

Whilst Sophie, Dan and Rich were taking part in the Dukeries 40 last weekend, Jonny Priest matched their feat by doing a “40 miler” in France.

He has sent us a short update (and some fantastic photos!) on how the event went:

“While making no comment on the forthcoming in/out referendum on Europe, the Inzpire ‘Wall’ team went temporarily European last weekend.

While three of the Inzpire team ran around Clumber park, I ran along 40miles of the Santiago De Compostela route in The Lot region of France. Starting in the Bastide town of Lauzerte, I ran along the ancient pilgrim route via Cahors back to my home village.

It was a beautiful route, but it did remind me of the importance of checking the vertical extent of running route! After 1250m of climbing, the support of half of my ‘brats on bikes’ was welcome as I crossed the Pont Valentré into Cahors. Not as welcome as the shade of the tree in our garden though!”
