Race Review – The London Revolutions Trail Marathon

Advertised by this mob (honestly they get everywhere) this weekend I took part in the new Threshold event, after completing King and Stones in 2016, and Tower in 2018, the London Revolution trails marathon and ultra. I was pissed off from the start. I may look back and rate completing the Threshold series of Race…

Race Review – St Illtyds Ultra – Take 2

2018 Back in the annals of history (last year) I ran this race… I stayed in a shitty hotel. The pub closed early. I didn’t eat at all for most of the time. JK, Clare and I got lost, as did Whiffers, Tori gave people a lift, poor Sarah got sick, I drank Parma Violet…

Race Review – Rock ‘n’ Roll Madrid Marathon

London Marathon Weekend “I ran a marathon..” “What London?” “No, Madrid.” “Oh, how far is that?” You enter the ballot, with the half of the universe that Thanos did not wipe out with a click of his fingers, and you might get in, but I doubt it. I didn’t get in in 2014, or 2015…

Race Review – Hanover or Hannover Marathon

I do love me some overseas racing fun and games.  The first race I ever signed up for was Amsterdam half. My A Race is Comrades. My first marathon was Berlin, and I had booked Copenhagen before I ran that to take the pressure off. Fast forward 33 marathons or above and I have enjoyed …

Race Review – The Big Half

I was signed up for the Big Half last year. It was during a period where my race calendar played a game of Find the Lady with me. I was supposed to run GMU45, but tried to drop to GMU30, as it was just after TGC and so binned the Big Half as it was…

Race Review – Portland Coastal Marathon – Take 2

Portland Coastal Marathon – the Rerunning This blog will be a little different than normal as we found ourselves travelling this weekend to Portland, a place that is a little different than normal; a place lost in time that definitely does not have any of the features Booking.com thinks it does, unless the people watching…

Race Review – Pilgrim Challenge

The XNRG Pilgrim Challenge Here we go, 2019, starting with a gentle January of New Year’s Eve bottling in Zurich and then a 5K PB attempt failing by a gnat’s whisker, February is going batshit crazy to the extreme and from the off. With the Revenge of Portland Coastal Marathon coming in the second weekend…

Parkrun!

Am cataloging my parkrun adventure as I try (slowly) to work my way up to 50, 100 and beyond parkruns. I am enjoying the tourism aspects mostly, so will be reviewing the runs as I do them and republishing as I do.

Race Review – Neujahrsmarathon Zurich

I do. I love Switzerland. I love the food. I love the mountains, even when climbing them. Ultraks and Lucerne may not have been my best races but I certainly got some great race photos out of both in 2017 and had a thoroughly wonderful time. So when I planned a trip to Zurich for…
