Bewl 15 or Is this a mid-life crisis?

Bewl 15 - Wadhurst Runners 2016

Bewl 15? 15 what? Miles? Hang on so, it’s further than a half marathon and it’s not as far as a marathon? Fifteen miles? Who’s idea was that? You know if it was 2 miles shorter I could say I’ve done another half marathon. What can I say after this? Uurrr, I’ve done another running race of specific yet incomparable ...

Arun River Marathon or Transvulcania Legs

Arun River Marathon 2016

I sat in Costa Coffee on Saturday 16th May 2015, sipping my Medium Latte and contemplating my strategy for the Arun River Marathon the next day. A mild buzz in my pocket alerted me to an almost certainly vital message on my phone. Having efficiently dealt with said message I began scrolling through Facebook posts. Some of which read as ...

Transvulcania Ultra or Poles? We don’t Need Poles

Transvulcania Ultra 2016

If you’re going to put yourself through hell, you might as well do it in heaven, eh? When I took part in my first race back in 2010, at the age of 40, I thought running might become a nice hobby to keep me fit. But if completing the Transvulcania Ultra has proved one thing, it’s that running is no ...

High Weald Challenge – 50k Ultra Trail Race

High Weald Challenge 2015

High Weald Challenge 2015 – Having struggled a little with the Purbeck Marathon the week before I was a little pensive heading in to the High Weald Challenge, a 50k Ultra through Ashdown Forest in East Sussex. The hills would certainly not be as difficult but the distance might prove my undoing. Lazy August It’s interesting looking at my Strava ...

Grim Reaper Ultra 2015 – Race Report and Video

Grim Reaper Ultra 2015 70 Mile Race 2015

Before the Grim Reaper Ultra 2015, Richard and I had previously only run two ultra distance races. Last year we ran the Longman Ultra, a 33 mile race along the South Downs Way, and the Brecon Beacons Ultra, 46 miles over the famous Welsh hills. Why we thought this qualified us to take on 70 miles is anybody’s guess. Still ...

It’s a 21 mile race over the South Downs with hills round every corner. Last year I was accompanied by club mates Grant and Scott. This year Grant was unwell, ...

Phoenix Year End Marathon

Phoenix Year End Marathon

I was convinced that I had run my last marathon of 2014 but the Phoenix Year End Marathon was an unexpected last minute treat. This is my race report and review. I ran Portsmouth Coastal Marathon last weekend and did ok. 3 hours 35 minutes was my fastest time of the year and I was happy with that. You can ...

Portsmouth Coastal Waterside Marathon is a flat, multi-terrain marathon starting on the seafront at Southsea and running out and back to Hayling Island. Elsa and Ellis came along and we met Richard, Tanya and Leia when ...

Hayling Island 10 Mile Race

Yesterday I ran the Hayling Island 10 mile race. I seem to be incredibly lucky with race day weather recently. It was a gorgeous, crisp, bright morning as Richard and I set off towards Portsmouth. Dirty Running Kit Having not raced the Hayling Island 10 mile race before we left rather earlier than we perhaps needed to. Just as well ...

Brecon Beacons Ultra 2014

Brecon Beacons Ultra 2014

It was only three years ago that I ran my first marathon, in Paris in 2012. If you had asked me then if I could run a 46 mile ultra marathon over the Welsh hills, I would have laughed and told you to….well I can’t say what I might have said. Longman Ultra Earlier this year a friend at running ...

Beachy Head Marathon 2014

Beachy Head Marathon 2014

Beachy Head Marathon 2014 was marathon number 8 for me in total and number 6 this year! I don’t know what’s happened but this year I seem to have gone a bit mad with the marathons. Partly due to the influence of my friend Richard who joined the Harriers club last year and has not stopped running since. Beachy Head ...

Longman Ultra – Race Report

Longman Ultra

My first ultra distance! Sometime ago, my friend Richard asked if I’d like to run an ultra with him. My response was not dissimilar to “Heavens man, what are you thinking? Good Lord no.” Actually it was quite dissimilar to that, but you get the idea. However, as time passed over the summer I mellowed a little and even began to ...
