Charlie's an ultra runner


CHARLIE Sharpe from Croft has been confirmed as winner of the 2012 UK Ultra running championship – after running 210 miles over six qualifying races.
A personal trainer in Warrington, he has raised more than £2,000 for the Reverse Rett Syndrome charity.
An Ultra race is one longer than a 26.2 mile marathon.
The longest he ran non-stop was 150 miles, which took 36 hours 23 minutes but the sixth, which finally clinched his title was a 31-mile race finishing outside Nottingham Castle.
About 560 runners took part in one or more qualifying race during the year.
