Forthcoming Races

I currently have the following races booked.


20th Jan 2018
Beyond the Far Side
The event starts at 1100 hrs on Sat  20 Jan 2018 and strangely for a 24 hour event it doesn't finish until Sun 21 Jan 2018 at 1100 hrs. The astute amongst you will therefore have long cottoned on to the fact that this therefore means some running in the dark. Bring a headtorch.....and warm clothing.......and a change of clothing..........and waterproofs..........and as many pairs of shoes that you think you may want to use (you will need off road shoes).

11th Feb 2018
Brecon to Cardiff
The Brecon to Cardiff Ultra is a 70k, one way, fully marked race that winds its way from Brecon following the River Taff.  You will start in the Brecon Beacons National Park with its dramatic mountain landscapes, past crashing waterfalls and crystal clear reservoirs.  As you head further south you will encounter a different landscape with reminders of Wales’s industrial heritage

3rd March 2018
Green Man Ultra
The Green Man Ultra 45 is a full loop of the Community Forest Path, starting and finishing at the stunning Ashton Court Mansion House just outside the centre of Bristol. Parking for the event is strictly in the Church Lodge car park and then walk up to the Mansion House, following the race signs.

11th March 2018
Imber Ultra (Sweep)
The Imber Ultra Marathon is a trail run of approximately 33 miles. It starts at the Leighton Recreation Centre in the town of Westbury at the north west of the Imber Ranges.

Thames Path 100 - Pray for me!!
The 1l00 mile course is a marked point to point race which takes runners from Richmond in South West London to the centre of Oxford. The course follows the loo route of the Thames against it's flow and is flat and fast with the majority on groomed paths/ trails and paved I'll i loo. There are some truly stunning sections of the route showing off the best of English riverside scenery and life on the Thames.

8th Jun 2018
London to Cardiff Relay
London Cardiff 24 Hour Team Relay Challenge is the UK's longest point-to-point, non-stop running relay challenge. You and your team run 24 stages (3-13 miles), through towns, over fields, and along footpaths from Twickenham to Cardiff. You have 33 hours but can you work together to beat the clock.

7th July 2018
The Serpent Trail 100k
The 100k Ultra race is the full length of the Serpent Trail and has been designed to allow participants to be as fast and light as possible.  Starting on a Surrey high street, within a mile the trail enters woodland and then ascends to the highest point in the South Downs National Park, snaking through glades, copse, fields and heathland as it rises and falls through the Wealden Greensand Hills.

Aug 2018
Mendip Marauder (50 miles)
Starting at the Market Town of Frome (for the whole of the Mendip Way) or from Wells (for the West Mendip Way only) you will run through a real smorgasbord of Somerset scenery. If you like hills then you will find plenty to enjoy here, but either way you will be amply rewarded for climbing the hills with views to breathe life into tired legs and then a downhill cruise to help get your strength back.

22nd September 2018
MT Snowdon Ultra 50
Starting from the beautiful Betws-y-coed and following a well marked route with 8 Checkpoints spread out along the course to support runners taking in Mt Snowdon, Glyder Fawr, Glyder Fach, Y Garn, Foel Goch, Elider Fawr, Pen yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Dafydd, Carnedd Llewelyn, & Pen yr Helgi Du making it a 50 Mile you’ll always remember with 17919 ft of Ascent (5462m) and Phenomenal GB Ultras support throughout.

16th November 2018
Escape from Meriden
There is an ancient cross marking the centre of this land. At Midnight, 100 shadows will flee, any way they choose. The further they run, the richer their reward. They will be watched...
