North Downs Way Marathon | Hermes Running

North Downs Way Marathon

I love the summer so much. I spend the entire winter counting the days until it gets warmer and the mornings get lighter. But I’m beginning to think that when it gets really warm my running suffers. Case in point – The North Downs Way Marathon. Hermes Running Hermes Running North Downs Way Marathon starts from near Reigate Hill Car ...

Paris Marathon 2017

Paris Marathon 2017

Six times I’ve towed the start line of the Paris Marathon. Six times I have walked down the Champs Elysees at 8am with 26.2 miles ahead of me and 40000 other runners around me. I love it. I’ve not done any race as many times. London Marathon three times, Brighton Half Marathon four times. Almost every year, the sun shines ...

Zwift Running First Marathon

What? You’ve never heard of Zwift? Where have you been for the past 2 years? Zwift Running is the new module on the primarily cycling platform that is Zwift.

Beachy Head Marathon

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 ...

Bath Running Festival 2016

Bath Running Festival

After running the South Downs Way 100 at the beginning of June, by mid-July I realised I hadn’t actually run a marathon for quite some time. I was supposed to run a marathon at the end of the Bastion Full Triathlon, but of course, I didn’t finish that race. So, as a training run, on July 18th I did the ...

Paris Marathon 2016

Paris Marathon 2016

Five times I have crossed the channel to run the Paris Marathon. It is without doubt one of the best marathons in the world. Ok, I’ve not done that many but, honestly it’s got to be right up there. Many consider the London Marathon to be one of the best and in many ways, Paris beats London hands down. Of ...

Larmer Tree Marathon

Larmer Tree Marathon 2016

Peacocks, parrots, Christmas Tree men, hills, mud, stunning views, motorcycles, sunshine, woodland and the tallest folly in the UK. The Larmer Tree Marathon pretty much has it all, save for a distinct lack of llamas. What’s going on? I have suggested it be renamed The Peacock Marathon but this has yet to be ratified by any statutory body. Parrots and ...

Steyning Stinger Marathon

Steyning Stinger Marathon

During last year’s Steyning Stinger Marathon, I filmed a documentary called ‘How to Run a Trail Marathon’. Which you can see here. Consequently my finish time was around 4 hours 45 minutes. My second slowest marathon to date. The Steyning Stinger is not an easy trail race and it deserves some respect. It also deserves to be given a good ...
