The Imber Ultra

My first time running this event was this year (2018). In fact it was my first ever Ultra. An extremely well run event with nice little touches. The checkpoints were outstanding with food/sweets and the staff used first names which made it friendlier. The ground was far from flat but being local ...


Humanity Direct Amersham Ultra

This was not a race to be taken lightly. Trail marathons are tough. I have run a few and I DO NOT look forward to them. This does beg the question of “why do I do them?” and my answer would be that sometimes they just fit in the calendar. I did not feel great about this race but only from a pers...


Trail del Marganai

I ran the trail del Marganai in March 2018, it is a 52km ultra with 2,200m climb, in Sardinia. I was very nervous about this one, because it is my first race abroad (ie. in a foreign language) and also because I had never done so much climbing in one day! I was wrong to be worried, the race was ...


S1 La Corsa della Bora

The 2018 S1 was my first ultra and this is my first review, so bear with me. I found the race both well and poorly organized: well with respect to runner safety and support, poorly when it comes to communication. Though the website and the materials were ostensibly trilingual (Italian, Slovene an...

Cookie Monster

Chester Ultra

The Chester Ultra ‘50’ was my first ultra distance race. The organisation was first rate. The registration on Friday night was smooth as anything. I got the course marked out on my map and got the latest update on the course conditions. Prepare for mud! I like the area around Chester and the rout...


West Pennines Double Marathon

Raced in 2017 and 2018. I was searching for something that would be good training for a summer ultra and this Howler event fit my race calendar perfectly... I've now done it twice (loved it so much I came back and entered other events in the series too) - it's worth noting that parts of the Dou...


The Coastal Challenge

Having completed the MdS 2016 on virtually no training it would be fair to say I was complacent anout TCC. The MdS contingent all stated this race is tougher! So originally I signed up for the Expedition and set off on day 1 with this in my sights. The searing heat sneaks up on you. There is no c...


Borneo Ultra Trail Marathon

2018 50Km Even for the 50Km a "Brutal" rating seems about right. Not so much for the terrain or elevation gain but for the temperature. Race was well organised, well marked. Trails were mostly on well defined tracks although some sections particularly towards the finishing line were difficult t...
