Congratulations Helen on first female V40 on the UTMR

Congratulations to Helen Pritchard who completed this year’s Ultra Tour Monte Rosa [UTMR] last weekend finishing as the first V40 lady and 6th female overall…in good Rucksack Club tradition in such races! Day 3 was cancelled because of heavy snow. Conditions on the first 2 days were perfect, however Day 3 was cancelled because of heavy snow…as a consequence an alternative reduced route was ran on day 4 with the organisers flag a 25km 1600m route in the early hours of that morning!!! Helen noted “It was a circular route keeping us much lower down but just stunning. I loved it!”
