Thankfully, Simon Pryde‘s sport bulletins are more current than his (excellent) race reports, otherwise he’d be telling his listeners England had just won the Football World Cup.

After completing his first ultra at the weekend Adrian Brooks reports there more to running than quick times and PB’s.  The tag line of the rat race ultra marathon is ‘you’ve had 2000 years to train’. Now that’s not strictly true for me.   The journey to running this, my inaugural ultra at 69 miles, …

2014 Penshaw Hill Race

For most runners, the challenge comes whilst taking part in a race. Simon Pryde’s challenge, however, is actually making it to the race in the first place.   Penshaw Hill Race: Wednesday, 4th June, 2014 “You’ll have to write it. I’ve got decorating to do”. The words of the Badger induced panic. I already have two …

In a busy week of race reports Stuart Dickson submits his account from Wednesday evening’s MT race.   George Ogle Memorial Race: Wednesday 28th May 2014   “You need a new nipple”.

Liverpool Half Marathon 2013

After calming down, Simon Pryde has sent in this race report from the Liverpool Half Marathon.   On Sunday, I did the Liverpool Half Marathon. With the Marathon des Sables just 3 weeks away I’d begun my taper, but fancied a race to keep things ticking over.   So off I trundled in the ageing …

The Druid Challenge : 9th – 11th November 2012

Simon Pryde reports from this year’s Ridgeway muti-stage Ultra race. He was in tears when he ran past me. But he still had twelve miles to go. Twelve energy-sapping,  slippery, muddy, hilly miles. It was Day 3 of the Druid Challenge, an undulating 84 mile route from Ivinghoe Beacon near Tring in Hertfordshire to Wroughton, …
