Race to the Stones, Wiltshire 08/07/23

Peter McQuillan was in action on 8th and 9th July at one of the UK’s most iconic ultramarathons, Race to the Stones. The 100km route followed a section of one of the country’s oldest trails from Lewknor in Oxfordshire through the Chilterns to Avebury in Wiltshire, passing sites such as the Uffington white horse, bronze age hill forts and the Avebury Stone Circle. The course offers separate 50k races on Saturday and Sunday, a 2 day 100k option or the non-stop 100k race. Naturally Peter chose the hilly non-stop 100k race and finished in 16:46:51.
