Races

Windy Hill fell race 2016 – report

Dreadful. My performance and result on the day, not the race itself – that was a classic fell challenge with a brutal climb and great organisation.

Dewsbury 10k 2016 – a big PB

My plan for Dewsbury was to go out hard and hang on banking on my improved fitness and speed gains from recent training to get me through.

White Rose 100 – Race Report 2015

Despite another 30 miles left to run, weeks of worry and nerves along with 16 hours of running so far evaporated. I knew I would finish this.

Going Ultra

Big challenge this week by racing on one evening then an ultra the next morning.

A leg of the Bob Graham Round

I’ve been interested in attempting a solo Bob Graham Round almost from the minute I first heard about it. A good place to get a taste of it is the Billy Bland Challenge Relay.

Transylvania 50k – Race report

If you’d have asked me a few years ago to think up the most outlandish thing I might do in my life, running a mountain ultra starting and finishing at Dracula’s castle in Transylvania wouldn’t have even been close.
