St Peter's Way Sweeper

I was minding my own business last night and happened to be on Twitter when I clicked a button I don't normally click called Direct Messages and saw I had received one back in 6th October from Lindley Chambers an incredible ultra-distance runner and now Race Director for Challenge Running asking if I wanted to be a Sweeper for the St Peters Way 45 mile race in February 2013, well you know me I wrote back and asked if the offer was still there.

I opened up Facebook today and read this:

Sweepers confirmed for the St Peters Way Ultra. Allan Rumbles and Jerry Smallwood, both awesome ultra runners. You will be well looked after by those two.


This promises to be a brilliant run with some great runners attending after some great write ups of Lindley's inaugural race the Stort 30 last month. I am really beginning to enjoy this idea of Sweeping and helping out the ultra-distance community

  2. Nice work Jezza, I fancy putting something back into the Ultra running community, just as you are, and sweeeping seems a great way of doing it.

    1. Try contacting James at Centurion, he will be looking for Sweepers on the NDW50 and NDW100 and they start near you
