Bucket list

  • The Jungle Marathon - Peru. 230km over 5 days, from the Cloud Forest down 10,500ft to the Amazon Jungle below. Saw a documentary about this race on TV & it looks incredible.

  • Running the Grand Canyon - Rim to Rim to Rim, or the Grand to Grand ultra. Running just a few miles in the Grand Canyon in 2013 convinced me that this is somewhere I want to run more. It's beyond epic & inspiring.

  • JOGLE. From John O'Groats to Land's End. I've known about JOGLE for a few years now, and always felt it to be the ultimate in ultra running.

  • SPARTATHLON. Where it all started...maybe.


Other races on my "to-do" list
  • Lakeland 100.
  • Centurion Running's Grand Slam of 100 milers - SDW100, NDW100, A100
  • Ecotrail de Paris Ultra
  • Dukeries Ultra 40 miles
  • White Rose 60 miler 
  • White Star Running - The Ox Ultra
  • Highland Fling Ultra - 53 miles
  • K√∂nigsschl√∂sser Romantic Marathon
  • Peddars Way Ultra - 47 miles
