Dean’s Grand Slam

Alongside a raft of other races and marathons Yaxley Runner’s Dean Longman has completed the Scott Series of Ultra Marathons. Dean was one of only eight runners to complete all four races in the series.

He started the year with a run from Buckinghamshire into Central London a distance of forty five miles, Dean had a quick follow up with a February fifty (yes fifty) miler from Oxford to Henley. The series moved on to Lamport, closer to home in Northants in June for a thirty five mile race. The series finished on Saturday in the intriguingly named Studley Roger, a hilly circular run again of thirty five miles in the Yorkshire Dales a race Dean reasonably described as hilly.

Most people would be happy with that with 165 miles covered. Not Dean, he now takes on the Autumn 100 (miles) in two weeks time!
