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 […]

Saltwell 10k Race Report 2017

ABRAHAM TEWELDE had to pull out all the stops to retain his Ronnie Walker 10k road race title over a testing three-lap course in and around the outskirts of Saltwell Park.   The Saltwell Harrier just made it to the start line in time to defend his crown seconds before the near-500 strong field, who […]

White Rose Ultra Race Report

After supporting Phil James and Naz on their 60 mile White rose ultra last year I decided I wanted to do one. So after chatting with a few people who have done ultra marathons I decided to join some of my fellow hoops and signed up for the 30 mile White rose ultra.   Team […]

Galloway Dark Skies

Scafell Pike 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 […]

Iains Bob Graham Report

Bob Graham Round account – 26/27 May 2017     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.   For those that are […]

Highland Fling Race Report

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! […]
