Coastal Trail Series - Exmoor (CTS) (/Events/Coastal Trail Series - Exmoor

2017 Race Advertised as the toughest of the CTS races this one certainly lived up to expectations. Located at the Western end of Exmoor based beside the Hunters Inn. The route covers all the race distances, 10km, 21km, marathon, 55km & 73km all contained within the marathon route. The 55km is the...


South Downs Way 50

I ran this in 2017 as my third Centurion event and what will hopefully be the start of my grandslam of Centurion’s 50 milers. I knew that I could rely on Centurion to put on a well organised, well-marked and friendly event. As I had never run on the south downs I was less sure of how I would find...


South Downs Way 50

My first Centurion event but not my last. The terrain was very hilly and open. Long stretches of winding hills with the occasional steep decline to give you a rest. The day was hot and dry so the ground wasn’t great for trail shoes however not great for road shoes either. The course was marked ve...


60 van Texel

Around Texel 120K and 60K: an interview with the founding race director On Easter Monday 17 April 2017 one of the foremost ultraraces in The Netherlands will happen again. ‘De Zestig van Texel’ is an ultrarun of 60K around the island of Texel and includes a 4x15K relay as well. Top of the bill i...


Ultra Trail Barcelona

I was stood at the back of the start line for the UTBCN with no expectations other than to start and as we left 'Begues' (a small town jus outside Barcelona) I felt no fear because I really hadn't looked too closely at what I was about to do. The rainstorm the previous night had meant a complete ...


Chester Ultra

The course was absolutely stunning and certainly exceeded my expectations. I had no idea Cheshire was so hilly. Whilst the hills were hard, they also brought a new challenge, tremendous views, great descents and an eventual drop to the canal and the 6 miles to the finish. GB Ultra's organisation ...


Lakeland 50 UTLD (Ultra Tour Lake District) (/Events/Lakeland 50 UTLD

Ran in 2015. I was under trained, suffered hard, but managed to finish. What can you say? Probably one of, if not, the premier event in the UK! Great people, insane course! Why are you reading reviews? Just sign up! Commit to it! You WON'T be disappointed!


Wenlock Olympian Walk (or run) (/Events/Wenlock Olympian Walk

I did this for a training run in 2014. Very affordable, I think it cost £15! If you decide to run this keep in mind it's for walkers and not specifically for runners; don't expect gels etc. at the aid stations. The navigation I found fairly difficult, not a complaint just a comment as I prefer ma...
