Fancy running a race in fancy dress?

You've trained for a city marathon(or Half), determined to run it, but suffered an injury shortly before the event jeopardising your running of it. You could just abandon the race. Or walk/run it if your injury is not bad and that you just didn't get enough training in.Or, to further justify your inevitably slower time - run it in fancy dress! This happened to me before this year's Brighton Marath…

New Balance Minimus MT10

Having run the best part of a year in lower profile (4mmheel drop) cushioned shoes, I wanted to try these New Balance MT10 Minimus Trail shoes. They still have a 4mm heel drop but a more minimal feel to them as there's less cushioning, encouraging an even more efficient and natural running style. With ambitions to strengthen the feet and legs, Ive found these to have just the right (New) balance(!…

Saucony Kinvara 3 Review

As I've been trying to transition from heel-striking to what is arguably the more natural midfoot-striking position, I've been increasingly using lower profile shoes like the Brooks Pure Flow and Saucony Kinvara for more of my general running. I've used Kinvara versions 1 and 2 for shorter to medium length runs but tended to think they were a bit light for me on some of my longer training runs.  …

Ironman Austria July 2012

Austria Ironman, Klagenfurt 1st July 2012 - Swim 2.4 miles, Cycle 112 miles and Run 26.2 milesWith my 40th year approaching fast, I wanted to set myself a suitable challenge. In 2011 I had completed two marathons and really enjoyed setting myself a goal and completing it. Having the discipline to find a training plan and sticking to it suits my personality. It gives me a sense of achievement.With …

Ridgeway Run 2012

This Ridgeway race in Tring ranks among the highest in my favourite races list. I lined up for my 3rd running of the 30thanniversary of this race on a glorious Autumn morning on Sunday 10am, with a little over 500 other enthusiastic off-road runners. This year was cool, sunny and mostly windless which is not usually the case when up on the Ridgeway; perfect for a race. For me, the appeal of this r…

Dunstable Downs Challenge 2012

Dunstable Downs Challenge 2012This event is organised by Dunstable Roadrunners (www.dunstableroadrunners.org) and consists of three distances; nominally a half-marathon, a 20-miler and a marathon. It's a relatively small event, mostly off-road run on scenic, 'undulating' footpaths and trails on the Dunstable Downs and some navigation skills are definitely required as there are few course markings.…

Namibia Desert 5-day Challenge 2012

The Namib Desert Challenge (www.namibdesertchallenge.com) is a 5-day multi-terrain running event covering about 220km in the Sossusvlei area of southwest Namibia. It's quite a new event which has been inspired by the likes of Marathon des Sables and is organised by a South African company, Kinetic Enduro Events. NDC is a much smaller event than MdS, with numbers limited to 80 because of the potent…

Scott Race Rocker

Scott Race Rocker Being a convert of the lower profile shoes with lower heel-to-toe ratios, I've enjoyed these extremely lightweight, responsive shoes. At 200g (UK8) they still feel marginally more cushioned than out & out racing flats and their 5mm heel-to-toe drop assists with midfoot landing. I did a 14miler 'plod' in them which perhaps was a little too far (and slow) for them; Scott's recomme…

Lakeland Marathon

Lakeland Trail Marathon - ConistonI entered this race in January having seen the glorious pictures of the event in 2011 warm, dry not weather you'd associate much with a Lake District marathon! This year, sadly, normality resumed - a mild day but with lashings of rain on already soggy ground. This, however, did not detract from the enjoyment of the event.Looking in the results afterwards there we…
