Leki Instructor Lite poles review

By Fiona Outdoors

I have been testing the Leki Instructor Lite Walking/Running Poles. I find poles are useful when running longer-distances in the mountains and hills. They help to reduce general lethargy and muscle soreness thanks to the support of the upper body when using the poles.

Garmin Fenix 5S Review

By Alice Morrison

I bought my last Garmin over six years ago and it is the most basic model. It has actually served me really well, and so I was keen and interested to test out a much, much fancier model - the Garmin Fenix 5S.

LED Lenser® MH10 Rechargeable Head torch review

Winter runs mean head torches for almost everyone and it might not only be the darkness that is getting in your way. I tested this torch out on an epic climb of Ben Nevis. We started late so the whole descent was whilst it was snowing and in the dark, not the pleasantest conditions but absolutely brilliant for giving a state-of-the-art head torch a go.

SCOTT Vector Sunglasses review

Summer is here and sunglasses are a must-have item for most ultra runners. I tried out these Scott Vectors in absolutely ideal conditions for a real work out – hot, humid, very windy, Moroccan beach runs. There was plenty of glaring sun and pouring sweat to test them to the max.

Still Not Bionic – Ira Rainey book review

Still Not Bionic is the second book by Ira. His first, ‘Fat Man to Green Man: From Unfit to Ultramarathon’ was well received. I haven’t read his first book, but knowing how well received it was – and that you didn’t need to have digested that to read Still Not Bionic – I tucked into his second publication…
