I was more than pleasantly surprised when I received a note from Ellen McVey launching the "Montane Scottish Ultra Marathon Series (SUMS)".
A championship at the doorstep. Under one roof so to speak. Great!
Thankfully I had already entered the Fling the WHW Race and the Devil and now I have also entered the Glasgow to Edinburgh "double" Marathon. And with those four I would qualify for the Series. Well, I better finish the WestHighland Way race then...
My SUMS Races
6th March Glasgow – Edinburgh Double Marathon (56 Miles)
24th April Montane Highland Fling (53 Miles)
19th June West Highland Way Race (95 Miles)
7th August Devil o’ the Highlands (43 Miles)
There are more SUMS races which I might try eg. the D33. Calendar or legs permitting. I'll find out sooner or later.
Also entered for the first time:
28th August The CCC - Courmayeur-Champex-Chamonix (98k)
And for the 3rd time.
26th September: The Berlin Marathon
That's five Ultras and a Marathon. Sounds like a plan. Can't wait for the first race!
