Tengri Ultra Trail

May 2017 - This was my first ever Ultra so I’ve nothing to compare it with unfortunately. Absolutely loved the course...it was all central asian steppe but took in a varied and often stunning mixture of almost microclimates. There was a Marathon Des Sablesesque part that was very surreal, gorges,...


Pick Your Poison Trail Run

It wasn't until about 2.5k into the start of the race that I noticed that my shoelaces weren't even actually tied. And so began my day traversing the hills of Horseshoe Valley. [Pre-race] For a number of years I'd heard about, seen and wanted to participate in the Pick Your Poison Trail Run. ...


Marathon Des Sables

I completed the MDS in 2012 (after waiting for a number of years!) but I have to say I still toy with the idea of doing it again! I can only repeat what all the other reviews say and add that if you only EVER do one multi day/desert race then this is the one to do! I know it may not be the 'tough...


Connemara Ultra Marathon

Well organised road run through a very beautiful rural part of Ireland. Pretty flat (max elevation 400ft) and water stations every 3-5 miles, with the option to store your own nutrition at 2 points along the way, and portaloos along the route. All on tarmac so a good option for those going for a ...


100km of Namib Desert

December 2016 Cher East WOW!! what a spectacular run? I entered 100km Namibia run as preparation for the Marathon Des Sable, I wanted to get heat, sand and back to back training in a few months before MDS so that I would have plenty time to make any adjustments to my running kit, so basically N...


Iceland Laugavegur Ultra Marathon

As with many other Icelanders, this was my first ultra race, first time I went beyond the 42.2K. I've done it twice now and I will definitely be back for more. Is a great first race for anyone wanting to try out an ultra, it is a challenge but not enough to break you and turn you off ultra-mara...


Hardmoors 110 Ultramarathon

Hardmoors 110, 2017. I really liked this race. A friendly approach to a formidable distance; tough, but beautiful. Probably not for the faint hearted, especially the nighttime ascent up Roseberry Topping. Take more layers than you might anticipate; also running with a support crew to assist with ...


Skyrun 100

One of my favorite ultras. Very remote and very tough. Navigation is key!! Great organization. 10 out of 10
