The Monarchs Way 2017 is a true point-to-point non stop multiday race covering 615 miles – an event that approximates the escape route taken by King Charles II in 1651 after being defeated in the Battle of Worcester.
The inaugural event last year saw three runners make it to day 4 and no further. This year another three intrepid adventurers have undertaken the journey. Alan Cormack, Lee-Stuart Evans and Chris Yeo started the 14 leg event on Saturday, 20 May 2017 and are all still doing well. Chris and Alan are running together and have about a legs advantage accoding to the reports on the blog. Average leg length is 43 miles or thereabouts.
