The Railway Ultra

“Ultra!?” I hear you say. I know, I don’t really do ultras and well this wasn’t really an ultra for me. The course was a long a 4.5 mile strip of disused railway line south of Ironbridge in a picturesque countryside spot near the tranquil village of Coalport. There were 2 distances available to the […]

Salomon XA PRO 3D on Test

Cotswold Outdoor kindly asked if I would test a pair of Salomon XA PRO 3D trainers which they wish to promote. I must admit this is a chain of shops that has been off my radar until they contacted me with this request. Their shops cater extremely well for campers and outdoor walkers but I […]

Trail Marathon Wales 22nd June 2014

It’s my second year at this event and I’m becoming really fond of it. The course is set in the Coen y Brenin forest in Snowdonia, is very hilly and tough with 3500ft of climb but unlike Scafell last week, it isn’t rocky and the trails are very runnable. There are no particular high peaks […]
