Lakes in a Day Race Report

By Dan Stinton

Ambleside has become the new “Garden of Eden”.  It’s all we have left to keep our minds focussed as we clamber down another set of slippy rocks.  We’re progressing slower than expected but time has become irrelevant - there are clean shoes and dry socks at the checkpoint and the thoughts of hot pasta, pizza and somewhere to get re-focussed has become the primary aim after being buffeted around the hills in the Lake District for the preceding 10-11 hours.

Conti Thunder Run 2017

"I hope you f***ing die tomorrow" came the angry reply. I stare up at the temporary canvas roof and try to work out how much sleep I need to prepare for tomorrow’s challenge. I realise there’s not enough hours left.

Wind, sand and ever changing plans - racing my first ultra

This is it, four months of specific training all for this moment, to toe the start line of my first ultra race, the 60 van Texel. A new adventure, away from the marathon and into the unknown.

Glasgow to Edinburgh Race Review – Who knew flat could be so interesting?

I chose the Glasgow to Edinburgh race (G2E) as my first ultra for a number of reasons. Firstly, as an Edinburgh resident, it’s local; secondly, as it’s flat, it is a relatively quantifiable challenge for a first-timer; and finally, at under £50 to enter it’s good value and doesn't create a big sunk cost if injury prevents you making it to the start line.

Big Red Run 2016 - Birdsville, Australia

A down jacket protected me from the cold wind and the low temperatures, amongst the dunes of the Simpson Desert, the sky was not dark, it was black. A lack of light pollution, a lack of people, I was remote and alone in the outback of Australia. Above me the sky glowed with a series of glitter balls.
