Our first attempt at the Ivanhoe Way and my brothers longest run by far and certainly his first ultra....
Very wet underfoot, and lots of traversing muddy fields.
Would be a great summer run.
Ran the route from Ashby in an anticlockwise direction.
I carried quite a heavy pack for training purposes which included sleeping bag and shelter. We carried our own water and food for the entire run, so were self sufficient and more importantly didn’t breach any COVID restrictions. Water, bars and chocolate spread and banana sandwiches were the order of the day.
