• Scafell Trail Marathon

    That was harder than I expected. In hindsight I should not have been surprised by how tough the ascent and descent of Scafell were.
  • Weald Ultra Trail

    I’m still not sure what to make of Sunday’s race. It was equal measures awful and brilliant. It’s the first time I’ve run over the marathon distance in the last couple of years.

  • Parkrun Tourist

    In 2007 I moved to South West London and joined a Triathlon Club, Thames Turbo Triathlon.

At the finish someone with a laptop would add your time to the list.
  • Brighton Marathon

  • Five things I learned on my first Ultra Marathon

    The Royal Parks Foundation Ultra (50km/31miles) was my first run past the 26.2 mile point and I learned a few things along the way.
