One Slam 2023 took place between the 1st of January and 11th March. Runners had 10 weeks, or 70 days to complete their self appointed challenge.
Distances ranged from 50 miles right up to 1000 in that time, with ages from 3 to 81 and there were notable performances from everywhere, but particularly the runners at the outer extremes of that range. Amelia Dunkley stole the hearts of the crowd as she ran her way to a 100 miles (pictured first in below). Meanwhile Ian Maddieson finished his 1000 miles in the final hours. His is quite the story. A 15 time finisher of the Western States 100, he was one of four Vet 80 runners to finish the recent US 100 mile championships, which formed part of his Slam mileage, in a time of 37:15.
As always the community pulled together to encourage one another through their respective challenges. It has become such a wortwhile, inspiring and motivating event to start each year with. Long may it continue!
