I won an ultra! A Short Circuit

New edition on Trail Running Magazine- check me out!


And it was the very same Roclites that I was given as part of being in Team Committed Inov8 that steered me to a win at Punk Panther’s A Short Circuit Ultra (34 miles)


A real surprise for me considering that I’ve been focusing on shorter distances. I found it pretty easy and just seemed to get it right on the day by not pushing on too hard. It was a really enjoyable day out around Otley, the Chevin, Cow and Calf and the moors, Ed kept my spirits up and it was just one of those great days where everything goes right.

Punk Panther do lots of great events around the Otley area- well organised, friendly marshals and cracking food at the finish. Well worth a look!

Massive thank you also to Ed’s parents who put us up for the night, fed us and looked after our boisterous little new addition (and future running buddy)…Hadrian:


And in amongst puppy patrol and ultra marathons, I spent my time running around on the fells with work and Ed. Here’s a few pics of the past couple of week’s adventures:

An afternoon on Scout Scar:


Out and back to The Calf in the bitter cold today:


Couple of events coming up in December and some big challenges ahead. Right now though it’s time to put the fire on and enjoy a hot chocolate- I’m exhausted!
