Macclesfield Harriers has particular renown for achievement in ‚ÄėUltra challenges‚Äô. Many of these have featured in past articles in our own GO! magazine and elsewhere. Some of the things that individuals get up to can be mind numbing and at the same time a source of inspiration.
To celebrate these achievements we plan to do a series of articles in GO! and have these permanently displayed on our website so as to act as an ongoing stimulus for others to contemplate ‚Äúhaving a go‚ÄĚ.
Future GO! Magazine¬†articles will cover the achievement of records in Ultra events;¬† medalling at National level and a wide range of ultras that Harriers have had a go at.
It seems most appropriate to kick the series off with the UK‚Äôs classic big three mountain challenges; the best known of which is the Bob Graham. An inspirational read on this is ‚ÄúFeet in the clouds‚ÄĚ by Richard Asquith which includes mention of record achievements by Macclesfield Harriers.
