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.

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.

A serious trail shoe that thinks it is a boot - or is that the other way round?

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.
