After the past two weeks of hilly races, today’s flat marathon at Rhyl was planned to be a relatively easy affair but I should know better by now that they never are. Even a flat course isn’t easy because as a competitive runner I always push myself, so ran faster and therefore making it as […]

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 […]

Scafell Pike, Sting in the Tail

When I entered this race I knew it was going to be extremely tough but little did I know just how tough. I have run many hilly races and fell races but still nothing like this race. Often the going up can be very slow but usually time can be made up with some fast […]

I’m Back!

What an absolutely fabulous weekend in every way! It was great to be back up at Brathay Hall with the family to see Ally and Mac, the Brathay Staff, the 10in10ers and many other running friends. Even the unpredictable Lakeland weather was being very kind with warm sunshine. We drove up on the Saturday in […]

Mixed Emotions

Day 5 of this year’s 10in10 (10 marathons in 10 days) was a day of mixed emotions for me. I took a day off work to go up to Brathay. I suppose, if I’m perfectly honest I went up for two reasons, to support the runners but also because I wanted to go back to […]
