ELLIS RUNS A ONE-HOUR PR
Young Danny Ellis ran a stonkingly huge, one-hour PR to finish sixth overall in this year’s corner Canyon 50k trail race.
Danny told The Stable News: “Super fun race! I PRed for the course by about sixty minmutes… I think I had my nutrition dialled this year. I used Maurten Gels every 30 minutes, with salt tabs every hour. I drank three[ish] litres of water and a little coke.”

Chris told The Stable News: “What a great race. I have never done a 50k that was this hard. I didn’t know what time goal I should shoot for; 5:30 sounded great. Paced it well but legs felt tired off and on. So I backed off for a bit…Both legs cramped in the last three miles. I found the faster I ran, it got better but could still feel it. Finished in 5:16 and 15th overall.”
