2013 Targets

Posted: January 20, 2013 in Uncategorized

Its taken me a while to workout which challenges I want to test myself against this year, below are the races I will be targetting:

March 2nd – The White Cliffs 100, organised by Saxon Shores Ultra Trails Its a new 100 mile run, I’m keen to support new races and this event took my fancy towards the middle of last year when it was first advertised.

April 26th – 24 mile swim in 24 hours organised by This challenge attracted my attention acouple of weeks ago, swimming is my least favourite of things to be doing however the format is different to anything I have done and will provide new training challenges.

July 3rd – Thames Ring 250 mile run. Organised by This event has been on my to do list since I found out there was a race longer than the GUCR in the UK.


Sept 27th – Enduroman Lands End to Dover Triple – Organised by p:// This will be the first time a Point to Point Triple Enduroman has taken place in the UK it promises to be a great challenge and Im really excited about this one.

Training has been abit hit and miss the last two months, however I did finish the year off well, albeit having a DNF at The Piece of String Fun Run I was very pleased to have reached 97 miles, it was agreat event, organised by I then ran strongly at The Portsmouth Coastal Marathon finishing in a respectable time of 3.12. The next few months will be interesting in terms of training, I will be approaching the races like I always do with a well thought out plan to execute, as with everything I have done, completion is always my main priority anything else is a bonus.
