The Steyning Stinger is a cross-country hilly marathon through the South Downs between Worthing and Shoreham-by-Sea, consisting of four ‘Stinger’ hills.
Ely Runners Miranda Reynolds and Emma Greaves took part in the Steyning Stinger Marathon on Sunday 6th March 2016.
The scenery was stunning, the terrain was mainly trail and exceptionally muddy. The marshalling and organisation of the race was very relaxed and friendly. An added bonus was free photo downloads and free post-race English breakfast.
Miranda and Emma found it a challenging but very enjoyable race. Miranda and Emma completed the marathon in 5 hours 9min. 19th/20th female out of 41 and 128th/129th out of 192 overall.
1st – John Pepper 3:02:28,
9th – Edwina Sutton 3:40:19 (1st Lady),
128th – Emma Greaves 5:09:47,
129th – Miranda Reynolds 5:09:47
