1 & 2 for Ed, Strong SLOW Showing at Holmbush Race

It was a busy weekend for SLOW athlete Ed Catmur, with a win at the 44-mile Country to Capital off-road running race on Saturday in an impressive 5:22:38, 13 minutes clear of the second-placed runner. Not content to put his feet up, Ed then ran the Black (10.4km) course at the MVOC Holmbush and Buchan Country Park orienteering event near Crawley on Sunday, finishing second, behind fellow clubmate Matthias Mahr. Seven of the top eight finishers on the Black course were SLOW runners, and there were also wins for SLOW on the Brown and Blue courses.
