1st Annual Headtorch Marathon

I ran this in December 2018. What's not to like! Enjoying the company of people you've spent time with on the trails at different races and meeting new runners. Getting in some post Christmas miles, climbing and mud. Exchanging nutritional tips, penguin biscuits, half a snickers and a shot of w...

Peak District South To North

I did this in 2017 and loved it. Well, I loved almost all of it apart from the first 16 miles of the first day along the Tissington Trail. The second half of the day it got considerably more interesting and the best bit was heading towards the best pub in Edale - The Old Nag's Head! The race H...

Skye Trail Ultra

I DNF'd this race in 2018 due to my glass back but it really is an amazing route. Jeff the RD is bonkers but he'll look after you and I really can't recommend going to run this route more highly. Although I only made it to Portree, 25 miles and 8 hours later (yes, that's the average time it tak...


1st Annual Headtorch Marathon

Amazing night out. Totally different concept of a mass group run that's free. No racing just a big old social run out followed by drinks and food at the village hall. This was my second run at this and it was another fantastic event. It started at 7:30 and finished about 3am with some of the best...


1st Annual Headtorch Marathon

Friendly, informal and fun, a great way to burn off the mince pies


1st Annual Headtorch Marathon

I ran this in December 2018, what a bizarrely bonkers & brilliant run! Starting at 7:30pm on a Friday night when most people are are pulling on their finest for a night on the town a group of c.40 intrepid runners donned head torches & trails shoes & headed off for a guided marathon in the Surre...


1st Annual Headtorch Marathon

I ran this in Dec 2018. Lovely trails around Surrey a stones throw from London. Plenty of hills to break up the route and even an impromptu aid station with mulled wine and biscuits. Was amazing to go up box hill steps not long before finishing back at the village hall for food and a raffle.

1st Annual Headtorch Marathon

I ran this in December 2018 and had a great laugh. Mark Thornberry designed the course and it was a fantastic run - considering we were running through the heart of Surrey, not far from London, we barely touched any road except to cross it. Fabulous trails through woods and fields even though i...
