Adidas Chill tights and Asics knee tights

From late Spring onwards, it is time to break out the three-quarter-length or knee-length running tights and free those legs and ankles to the sun and wind. I like a shorter length because they give you all the support you need while keeping you that bit cooler, also you can get a pair of calf sleeves on underneath quite comfortably.

Helly Hansen Active Flow LS vs. inov-8 Hooded AT/C Merino LS

Whether you wear it for the entire run, put it on at the start when it’s chilly and take it off when you warm up, or pop it on at higher altitudes, there is little doubting the value of a long-sleeved baselayer or mid-layer. A baselayer is also useful year-round and, for many ultra runners, a favourite extra layer will be with them for years.

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.
