Matt Nichols took on the Lakeland Trails 55k Ultra on Saturday. There was a choice of 23k or 14k too, but why go for the easier option? The 55k route includes 3 mountain passes, with 7,000' ascent/descent starting in Ambleside.
Matt finished in a brilliant 8th place in 6 hours 56 minutes 37 secs. The winner was Damian Hall, Team Inov-8 in 5.39.12 and 1st lady Zoe McClennan, Total Tri Training, 6.58.15. 346 finishers
