I approached the morning of the Brampton to Carlisle 10 Mile race with some trepidation. Having just come off a rake of night-shifts (which also included the night before) I’d managed about two hours sleep on the Sunday morning before dragging myself from my warm bed to get sorted to head down to Brampton. Knowing […]Read more "Brampton To Carlisle 10 Miler Review (November 20th 2016)"
I’ve never been a fan of trail runs and I fully admit that I hadn’t planned to sign up to this race. But, having swapped shifts at work I found myself freed up to be able to do it. I ran the route last year and kind of enjoyed it as it is a mix […]Read more "Sport In Action Carlisle Urban Trail Race 10k Review – Wednesday 18th May 2016"
It had been three years since I last set foot on the start line of The Cumbrian Run. My last couple of years had been consumed with a first and second attempt at Chester Marathon. I had briefly dabbled with the idea of doing a third Chester Marathon but decided against it due to The […]Read more "The Great Cumbrian Run 2015 Review (Sunday 4th October 2015)"
Since I had embarked on my triathlon journey at the start of this year the one triathlon I had signed up to that I was dreading was this one.

I’d watched the event for […]Read more "TRI AGAIN – CARLISLE TRI CLUB TRIATHLON REVIEW (2nd August 2015)"
I was becoming a bit of a veteran at the Carlisle Tri Club 10k. In total I think I’ve ran the route about six times now (if you include the Resolution Run) and that’s not even taking into account some of the times I chuck it into a training run. However, I was having a […]Read more "Carlisle Tri 10k Review – 3rd June 2015"
The Urban Trail Race 10k was yet again another evening race but luckily this one was a little closer to home…2 miles to be exact. The run was to start at 6:45pm from outside of the Cathedral and, after a brief jaunt on the roads from the Cathedral up to the Millennium bridge, was set […]Read more "Sport In Action Urban Trail Race 10k Review (Wednesday 20th May 2015)"
The last attempt at the Carlisle Resolution 10k on 18th January was cancelled. If you remember, this was also the Sunday I forgot to wake up for Inskip Half Marathon. Post Marathon and Christmas (and fatherhood) had not been kind to my waistline. Christmas was a gorge fest of food and then more food. As […]Read more "Resolution Run 10k (1st February 2015)"
