||The Compton Challenge has returned after a break of three years with the options of a Marathon and a 16 Mile Challenge. Both routes meander around and over the picturesque Berkshire Downs, following clearly marked loops that criss-cross the ancient Ridgeway. The event takes runners along a variety of quiet tracks, trails and bridleways (which can get muddy when wet), plus some short, traffic free road sections.
In the marathon Charlotte Cox was 1st Senior Lady and 2nd female overall while Nicola Oldroyd was 2nd Senior Lady and 5th female overall. In the 16 Mile Challenge Jason Smith was 1st MV50 as well as being 2nd overall.
