THE Eiger Ultra Trail E51 is an arduous 51km trail race in Grindelwald, Switzerland, with 3,100m of vertical height gain.

To compound the difficult mountainous terrain the runners also had to contend with temperatures of 32 degrees centigrade.

Pete Bott took on this almighty challenge, which involved him having to adapt to the difficult conditions.

During the race he drank nearly 10 litres of water, and still felt dehydrated when he finished! Bott overcame everything the terrain and extremes of weather threw at him, to finish in a fantastic time of 11 hours 25 minutes and 19 seconds.

In the Wendover Woods Night 50K, James Mills ran through the night to complete three laps of Wendover Woods.

Along the way he overcame 6,200ft of elevation to finish in an excellent time of six hours eight minutes and 55 seconds.

On a hot and muggy morning at Salisbury parkrun, a volunteer, armed with bottles of water, sprayed the runners with refreshing bursts to give them temporary relief from the heat generated by their exertions.

Hard won PBs went to Matthew Gervais (17:56) and Kieran McManus (20:18).

At Churchill Gardens junior parkrun, Freddie Bosworth bagged himself a magnificent double of being the first finisher in seven minutes 16 seconds and raising the bar again with another PB.
