Race C.V.

After my father’s misdiagnosis and unfortunate passing, I found distance running, mostly on trials. I juggle this between running business’s and 4 young kids… anyway.

My first race was in December 2017, I came 17th out of 200 over 28.1 miles of hills and bad weather. A few months training, my father never made it to see my first race for charity.

April 2019 –  The Oner, 82 miles, 10,000ft climb over the Jurassic Coast, with a 24hr cut off. (the GPS recorded 86mls and 12,000ft in 21hrs) This is an extreme trail ultra, tougher than a normal 100 miler. I picked it as bad weather tester… helped a few folk get through the night, grabbed some speed foe the last 10 miles and gained 6 places, 50% didn’t make it. Loved it.

August – Centurion NDW100, 100 miles, 10,000ft climb with a  30hr cut off. Work projects have a priority, it should be a fun adventure and no stopping this time.

Both races are ‘A races’ with 5 ITRA points, some of the toughest races in the UK.

Next year – UTMB (105ml 10,000m) and then The Spine race…264ml. All the races I am doing are training for The Spine race. Then I am going back to the start of my race journey and doing everything a bit faster, as the kids will be older, more time to train, more experience, the goal is 3 years from my first race to entering The Spine race… why not pick one of the toughest races in the world for a goal.

 

Howies | Runners Film | Friday Night

Lush amazing clothing stuff just arrived… for the hills and casual and everything in between. Some of you longer range folk may know I am in pre-production for a broadcast format, concept film about runners… a mix of persona life and the race mindset. I am keeping the title hush hush. Anyway, it’s Friday, finishing work then running on the hills… guess what I am taking/wearing/rubbing on my face later. Check out their stuff, real clothes for real folk who get up to all sorts.  Nice fabrics, colour, fit all of it.  https://howies.co.uk/
