Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ pole review

By Alice Morrison

If I did it again, I’d take poles,” were Gavin Barrett’s words as he finished the Everest Trail Race, a 6 day stage ultra in the Himalaya. I certainly wouldn’t have liked to attempt it without them. In a mountain ultra, poles can help with everything from speed to stability.

PHD Ready Made Wafer Down K Series trousers review

By Alice Morrison

I had often heard of the mythical down trouser, a piece of kit so magical that it could save you from freezing your ass-ets off at even the lowest temperatures, so imagine my delight when the opportunity to try out a pair in suitably chilly (-10ºC) conditions arose.

Rab Microlight Summit Jacket Review

When you need a really warm, light layer to put on after a run, or during if you are in extremely cold conditions, nothing beats a down jacket. They represent instant warmth and can make all the difference to your overall state when you need to keep your core temperature up.

By Seth Grotzke

There are various reasons why you may find yourself running for upwards of eight hours at a time. Limiting those reasons to “Voluntary Pain Exposure” you could be training for a big race, running a big race, or just out for the day getting to places that few people ever see.

By Alice Morrison

I am a normal-sized woman when it comes to my chest – a 38B – in fact that may even be relatively small as the average UK woman’s chest size is now 36D or DD.

Rab Mythic 200 Sleeping Bag Review

By Luke Jarmey

When you carry a sleeping bag as a runner, you want it to be light… and I mean really light. However, as our multi day trail runs often take place in rather inhospitable environments, be it mountain, desert or just blooming wet n’ windy UK moorland, it’s critical that the warmth of the sleeping bag is sufficient for the climate in question.

SPOT GEN3 satellite tracker review

By Alice Morrison

I first came across Spot after I had gone out for a long run/scramble on my own in the desert hills which surround the tiny oasis of Tighmert in the Sahara and had climbed up onto the ridge and traversed it, only to find that the descent was both difficult and in some places quite dangerous.
