Hayle Runners on The Classic Quarter

Yesterday saw lots of Hayle runners taking part in the Classic Quarter as individuals, in pairs, or as part of four-person relay teams, either with fellow runners from Hayle or with people from outside the club.

The Classic Quarter is a 44-mile ultramarathon run along the South West Coast Path from Lizard Point to Land’s End. The route from the southernmost tip of the UK to the westernmost point means that, by the end, participants will have completed 90 degrees of the compass – which is how the ‘classic quarter’ name came to be.

As you can imagine, the route takes in some extremely tough terrain including rocks, mud, and trail, and over 5,500 ft of climbing! The weather can be unpredictable, but on this occasion the race took place in glorious sunshine, which added ‘heat’ to the list of challenges the runners had to face.

Hayle runners of all levels took part in the race, and the amount of support from everybody else has been lovely to see. We’re so proud of every single person who took part for any amount of distance – it’s a huge achievement. Well done, everyone!
