Since I started running in 1997, I have completed many races of various distance and terrain.

After a couple of half marathons I trained for the full distance and after running 20+ mile runs on weekends and recovering with in a day I figured I would enter 6 races spaced 2 weeks apart which I did and the plan was to run them if feeling ok, but not run them if injured or unwell.

In December the marathon distance races stop until London in April, but after racing every 2 weeks I needed something to do.. and that is when I entered my first Ultra.. Roud Rotherham 50 miles.. 50 miles of running off road on footpaths and tracks as per given instructions with checkpoints every 6 miles. Navigation was not strong but I completed it in 8H 50 mins in 16th place and the feeling was incredible... this is what running is all about..!!

Since then I concentrated on Ultra distance trail and fell / mountain running which when you add up the Marathon, FRA and Ultra running schedules provides a huge number of races each year within the uk, with distance races being held every week and many weekends providing an agonising choice...

After a while I saw other opportunities into longer distances and figured if one can run over 100 miles in a day then an Ironman triathlon must be within grasp as the combined distance of swim, cycle and run is 140 miles and cycling must be easier than running.. which thankfully it was.

After Longest day followed by Ironman Scotland 3 weeks later, I returned to running and set my sights on more extreme events like Badwater Ultra, 135 miles through Death valley in temperatures of 125 degrees farenheight which I attempted and successfully completed.

From this page I have results and photos of some of the races during the last 4 years.... I have categorised them into technical groups which are: Half Marathon, Full Marathon, Ultra distance trail running, Ultra distance Fell / Mountain running, Ultra distance road running, Cycling, Ironman triathlon and Ultra distance Triathlon events.
