Lakeland 50 race report

Trying to sum up my weekend at Lakeland 50 is extremely difficult, as there just aren’t words that are expressive enough to describe some of the feelings and emotions I felt on my wonderful adventure.
 
I woke up that morning totally hyper, as Is usual on race day. Quick shower then into my race kit

Keiths Joss Naylor Report

Whilst supporting an aspiring Bob Graham member he asked me, ‘if you were feeling fit, how long do you think you would take to complete a Bob Graham Round now?’ I mulled over the question for a brief moment, conscious that I didn’t want to lessen our pace as we headed towards High Raise. The

Temple Newsham Race Report


I had signed up for this race at the end of 2017 as it sounded like an interesting challenge. I was glad I did as it sold out fairly quickly.
 
The Saturday before the race was exactly the most ideal race preparation. A full day at work followed by a family birthday/get together meant that

The Big Apple – 7 years in the making

Scafell Pike race report

I entered this race on a whim. I was aware of how challenging it was likely to be as a running CV was required for entry to check you were capable of it. This was my third marathon. My first was Windermere, a hilly road race and my second was the St. Oswald’s ultra, a

It is the Tuesday after I ran up the steps and touched the door of Keswick Moot Hall at 23:19 on Saturday 27 May 2017 to complete a Bob Graham Round and I don’t think I have stopped smiling since.

I’ve previously written about my preparation for this race.. or lack of! Things had not quite went to plan but still I managed to head into this race feeling mentally and physically strong. I’m not sure how to write about 53 miles without it being an essay but i will give it a good go!
