On Saturday April the 11th I completed the 2015 edition of the North Pole Marathon in a time of 7:13:08, finishing 4th lady and 12 overall. The conditions were some of the hardest ever experienced in the event, with the terrain underfoot heavy going and the weather conditions testing with temperatures dropping to -41 and wind reaching 10 mph (5 meters per second).

This event was followed by the Hoka Highland Fling (a 53 mile trail race on the West Highland Way) just weeks later on Saturday 25th April 2015 which I completed in a personal best time of 13:18:04.

I am delighted with my performance in these 2 events and now look forward to the full West Highland Way Race on June 20th.
