When I’d first signed up to volunteer to marshal at the Derwent Epic Swim for Epic Events I’d totally gotten my dates mixed up. I genuinely believed it was the week after Blenheim and not the day after. So, a little bleary eyed after only getting back home at 10:30pm on the Saturday, I awoke […]Read more "Derwent Epic Swim Review – Sunday 5th June 2016"
Just three days shy of Manchester Marathon I found myself heading down to Keswick to watch the Round The Houses 10k. Well, I say watch. The idea on the morning was to go down and watch some of the DH Runners taking part. But, having stretched my legs the night before on a training run […]Read more "Keswick Round The Houses 10k – April 22nd 2015."

The idea behind this was that we would get in some vital training before […]Read more "Dodd Wood Head Torch Race"
Hello everyone. It has been a while since I last posted but I’ve been up to quite a bit in the past month or so. I’ve been to Barcelona and taken part in a half marathon. I’ve been to Blackpool and taken part in a very, very windy half marathon and I’ve been to Dodd […]Read more "In which Steve has technical issues"
I know what you’re thinking. “Hey Steve, where have you been?” Well, I’ve been very busy over the past few months and I’ve barely found a minute to myself let alone update the blog. One thing I didn’t do was the Brampton to Carlisle 10 mile run in November. I still didn’t feel quite ready […]Read more "GREAT LANGDALE XMAS PUDDING RACE"
