The great Sarva Pyrenees run – we did it!

Last Sunday, 3rd July 2016 at 5:45pm I wended my way up the final few yards of volcanic path to the Cap de Creus lighthouse and the end of my epic run across the Spanish Pyrenees. The azure blue of the Mediterranean Sea was on my right and to my left 524 miles of one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in Europe - the

Running Guides are on their way!

The first three Running Guides are on their way! I've been working hard('ish) on the country running guides over the last few weeks and the first three will be available very soon. They are going to be packed with information from all the countries we've visited and run in over the last 18 months - the first will include guides on Lake Como, Champagne and Berlin

My marathon journey

I'm often asked how my marathon journey started - well here's the story, warts and all ... "Do you want any help with your bag Andrew", one of my workmates asked as I stood, bent over the railings, halfway up the metal staircase. "I'll be fine thanks" I replied as I continued my slow, painful progress up the stairs, each step sending a searing pain through

Viva Barcelona … even in the rain!

There was an air of anticipation as the plane came in low over the Mediterranean and touched down at Barcelona Airport. Deja vu for me as I, along with 10,000 other competitors, had run my very first marathon here in 2013 - in fact this was the run that had started my endurance running adventure. The following morning, bright and early after a hearty breakfast, Marlena

Scenic runs – Ripe to Bo Peep to Alfreston

A beautiful March day and with the Brighton Marathon only 3 weeks away,  what better than to drive down to East Sussex for a run across the Downs. The start point was Ripe church and then a run cross the turf fields towards Chalvington before joining the country lane that leads towards the A27. After my exploits in the Beachy Head Marathon, I knew what

Running along the Fal Estuary

Another day, another County – I’ve moved to Cornwall now for some amazing runs along the estuary. This is the view from the cottage just before setting out. I ran up to Pendennis Head and then back along the beeches before crossing the estuary at Penryn and then running along the coastline through Flushing and on to Restronguet and Mylor harbour before turning around and

Training for the Coastal Endurance Trail Series

A fantastic couple of days training down here in South Devon. It’s been quite slippery under foot because of all the rain and yesterday I managed to get caught in a hale storm as I was running out of Salcombe (check out the rainbow picture!). Every thing was put right today though – beautiful weather as I ran along the coastal path from Prawle which
