Brathay Gold

Ultra & Marathon specialist, Sally Ford heads back to tackle the brutal Brathay Marathon, one of the hardest Road Marathons in the UK.

Sally has a lot of history on this course – it’s where she did her 10 Marathons in 10 days GWR and it’s one of the hardest Road Marathons out there.

Sally had an amazing race and was super happy to complete it in a total of 3 hours and 9 mins, coming 3rd female home and 1st Vet in the 35 cat. The TORQ Fuelling strategy worked well for Sally, using a TORQ gel every half an hour, she felt strong right up to the end.

Sally was pretty relieved to do well at this one after various injuries she’s been recovering from, and this race showed that she was returning to form. After, a TORQ Mandarin Yoghurt Recovery drink and a cool dip in the Lake helped soothe her aching legs!
