Cover Photo Uncovered for Issue 5 of Ultra Magazine

Well I can’t believe it, the news and issue are finally out and I am totally stocked to see my photo from this years Fellsman as the cover of the latest issue of Ultra Magazine. I’ve known for a quite a while now but still didn’t quite believe it until the issue finally hit my door mat on Saturday morning….

Ashmei Ambassador Day – March 2016

Well today was the day that all us hopefuls converged on ashmei HQ for the Ambassador selection day. We’ve all been working hard on our homework and social media-ing the hell out of it over the previous two weeks. For those that are confused about what I’m talking about, I explained all about it in my last blog post. The…

So what is all this #ashmeiambassador stuff about?

What’s with all these photos with the #ashmeiambassador and why are you now taking photos of yourself? Both relevant questions for anybody following any of my social media accounts over the last week.  Well the short answer is that I have been short listed to be considered as a 2016 ambassador for the ashmei athletic apparel brand.   I am…

2015 in Running Photographs

As I mentioned in my review of 2015, last year was the year where I really got stuck into my running photography, carrying my trusty iPhone with me on all my runs and races, snapping as I go. Many of these you may have previously seen on Facebook or here in my various race reports and posts. To celebrate the…

My Running Goals and Aspirations for 2016

Rather than ramble on I’ve decided to keep this post pretty short and to the point. As I outlined in my review of last year, I fell way short of the objectives I wrote for 2015. With a busy year coming up work wise – new job! – I’ve decided to cut the list back a little, to give me…

A Quick Review of My 2015 in Ultra Running

Well another years draws to a close and its time for my usual (well second anyway) navel gazing at how the past year went. For 2015, rather embarrassingly, I have the post I wrote back in January to refer back to and mark myself against. Short summary? Could do better! Of the list of objectives I set myself for the…

Ultrarun.in photos grace the pages of Ultra Magazine

Many of you may already be aware of the superb new ultra running magazine which launched last year, called Ultra. Well issue 3 was published this week and I was extremely proud to see Andy Nuttall’s race report of The Cumbria Way Ultra. Not only was it a great read, as the whole magazine is, but Andy had chosen my…

Ultrarun.in Shortlisted for the RunUltra Blogger of the Year Award 2016

I was super chuffed to receive an email earlier today saying that this website has been shortlisted for the RunUltra Blogger of the Year Award for 2016. There are loads of superb websites and blogs out there publishing content about ultra running, so I am of course extremely flattered to have made it through the initial evaluation and onto the…

Looking back at my first year as an ultra runner

This weekend marks exactly a year since I ran my first ultra marathon, the forty mile Grimreaper Ultra at Grimsthorpe Castle. I can’t believe it’s only been a year! Since that race I’ve run three more (Peddars Way Ultra, Hardmoors 55 and Norfolk 100) and also had some wonderful running adventures across the country. There have been highs and some…

Running Movies, Visualisations and Data Fun

I’ve been playing around with the Movie feature on Suunto Movescount, which will take the GPS track data you’ve recorded and combine this with videos, photos and text you’ve uploaded, to create a short video of your adventure. A bit of fun and you get some interesting results. Here are a few I’ve made from some of my recent runs…
