To Liberal and back: Weekly update 6

Well done Olney Runners! This week in the Pancake Challenge, the club has run 1740 miles. We seem to have found our ‘groove’ as a club, staying consistently at around the 1750 mile-mark for the last few weeks.

Our journey this week means we are still on the plane back from JFK, but as you can see on the map, we are in the final stages and are just beginning to fly over Ireland. We used up all of our in-flight puns and jokes in that very first post after week 1 of the challenge (!), so this time perhaps we’ll tell you a bit about the land we’re flying over - hopefully there’ll be some nice scenery to see out of the windows as we go.

We are flying over County Clare in western Ireland, a popular tourist destination for its varied landscapes and coastal views. The county’s colours are blue and yellow, so make sure to don your OR kit so that our blue and gold colours match! More specifically, we think we are flying over the town of Miltown Malbay and over Slieveacurry Hill, with a peak of 255 metres above sea level. The hill is apparently the 12,888th highest peak in the British Isles - that’s a long list!



Sadly, there’s not much more to say about this place, so let’s crack on with the journey back home!

We now have 388 miles to run to make it back to Olney - and we only have until Good Friday to do it! The five-day countdown is on. Any running on Good Friday will count, but if you’re thinking about saving your long run for the weekend… think again!

We’ll let you know over the weekend whether we’ve made it back to Olney! Come on team, let’s keep going for the final push!

Edit: if you are not on Strava and want your miles to count in this final week, please send your weekly mileage to [email protected] by end of Good Friday
