Beachy Head 2017 | Best Trail Marathon Result Ever

Beachy Head Marathon 2017

Oh Beachy Head Marathon, you are irresistible. The four I have completed can virtually sum up my running career. Year One, 2014. I wanted to run under 4 hours. But I was filming as well. I started too fast, was completely done in by 17 miles and walked most of the last 6. It’s fair to say that I was ...

South Downs Way 100 | A Nightmare from Start to Finish

It would be wrong to say I know nothing about what it’s like to DNF in a race. Last year I took on my first and only full distance triathlon, the Bastion at Hever Castle. I couldn’t finish, partly because I had two punctures on the bike section and missed the cut off as a result, but mainly because I ...

Beachy Head Marathon 2016

I’m not fit. I really should not be running the Beachy Head Marathon 2016 having had virtually no training for 5 weeks. This is a ridiculous idea. Furthermore, this is not any old marathon we’re talking about. Beachy Head Marathon has over 1000 metres of elevation with the final six miles climbing over the Seven Sisters. Still, the prospect of ...

South Downs Way 100 – Centurion Running

South Downs Way 100

“One hundred miles??? You ran a hundred miles? How do you even DO that?” is the way my son’s school teacher reacted when I told her I’d run the South Downs Way 100 over the weekend. She didn’t ask, I just told her because I’m a runner and that’s what we do. We love it don’t we? You know, that ...

South Downs Way 50

The week before that I ran the CTS Endurance Life Ultra in Eastbourne, before that, the Larmer Tree Marathon, Steyning Stinger Marathon, ...

Endurance Life CTS Sussex or I CAN Cross the Road by Myself

Endurance Life CTS Sussex

This was my first experience of an Endurance Life Coastal Trail Series event. The Endurance Life CTS Sussex consisted of a 10k race, a half marathon, a marathon and an ultra. Richard and I obviously decided to kill ourselves and run the ultra. Around 6000ft of climbing through the Seven Sisters Country Park from Birling Gap, to the Cuckmere Valley, ...

Beachy Head Marathon 2015

Beachy Head Marathon 2015

Tell me you love hills. You do don’t you. Because if you are ever going to run the Beachy Head Marathon you are going to have to get used to them. Beachy Head Marathon 2015 was my second attempt at conquering the South Downs and the Seven Sisters. Fat Adapting Last year I bonked, badly. I have one excuse. I ...

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 ...

Eastbourne Half Marathon 2014

Eastbourne Half Marathon 2014

After three weeks out injured, following the Meon Valley 21 miler, I was back and ready to start training again for the up-coming Paris Marathon. The Eastbourne Half Marathon was one of two warm up races and a race I have done twice before in 2012 and 2013. In fact the 2012 race is currently my half marathon PB course. ...

Ten reasons to join a running club

Join a running Club

1. Train Harder Training for a marathon, or any race, is tough and if you want to get good, you need to train harder. Join a running club and you’ll be pushed out of your comfort zone. You’ll run faster, for longer, than you ever would have on your own. 2. Motivation When it’s cold and wet outside it’s easy ...

Eastbourne Half Marathon 2013

Four weeks to go before my goal race, the Paris Marathon, and the training races are coming thick and fast. Worthing Lido 4m, Chichester 10k, Brighton Half Marathon and this weekend I completed the Eastbourne Half Marathon 2013. Last year, Victoria and the children came along but, because of swimming lessons, they weren’t able to come, leaving me transportless. Is ...

Brighton Brooks 10k

I am slowly recovering from injury. About 7 weeks ago I suffered a serious bout of Sciatica. The pain in my back quickly subsided, but I have had residual leg pain with numbness and tingling ever since. In the past 3 weeks I have found I am able to run again to some degree and today I completed the Brighton ...

Fitness level

My fitness level has really dropped off this past month following two bouts of illness. No sooner had I recovered from a cold which had lasted about three weeks, I succumbed to a virus and was full of headcold, headache and general malaise for another 5 days. I ran parkrun in Brighton two weeks ago in 20:30 which is a ...

Eastbourne Half Marathon 2012

Managed to run a personal best at the Eastbourne Half Marathon 2012 on Sunday. There is a huge hill on the course up to Beachy Head but as slow as it is running up it’s equally as fast running back down. Completed the course in 1:36:05 in 172nd place. Had to leave Worthing at 8am to get Hallum and Jevan ...
