This is my journey in reverse order (most recent first). Its been a long couple of years, which started off with just doing one event and has snowballed.
I have three big events planned for 2017, amongst various other shorter distances.
The Wall (Hadrians Wall)
17th /18th June 2017
Starting off from Carlisle Castle following Hadrians Wall to Newcastle 69 miles.

Isle of Wight Challenge
29th / 30th April 2017
A tough full circle of the coastal footpaths of 66 miles of the island

Jurassic Trail Half Marathon

Last chance for some hill training along the cliffs at West Bay.
Bournemouth Bay Half Marathon

Lands End to John O'Groats (Virtual Challenge)
1084 miles recorded between 1st October 2016 and 28th March 2017
Millennium Way Ultra
5th March 2017
This was a 41 mile run from one side of Staffordshire to the other. More info is here www.beyondmarathon.com/millennium-way/.
Sunday 26th Feb 2017 starting from Sandy Balls. Not done this one before and looks a tough route.
Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1 50 KM
On Sunday 14th August 2016 I took part in this 50 km trail run. It was such a hot day and the route was extremely challenging....I do pick them!! But I managed to finish what was a very long day. Managed to collect another small amount of sponsorship to add to the total. So close to £3,000.00!!
Sunday 17th July a full off road marathon. The most unusual of runs I've done to date with a Roman theme. Runners in fancy dress, Romans on horse back at the start. Marshalls dressed as Romans. A tough run and one of the hottest days of the year.
Isle of Wight Challenge
On Saturday 30th April 2016 I competed in the Isle of Wight Challenge. One complete circuit of the island following the coastal footpaths. Unfortunately I had to pull out at the half way point 32 miles with an injury, but have already entered again next year as I feel the Island has beaten me this time.
