Training in Costa Rica

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a morning run around the sun drenched beaches of Costa Rica. Having shaken off severe man-flu and suspected malaria I have got back in the training seat in preparation for the big 100 in June. The coastal paths, the hilltops with amazing views. Makes London a distant memory. New Years may cause a slight blip in the training regime but just being here is heaven!


The UKs Toughest Footrace – Ultra Trail South West 100 mile race

Having been trying to shake of the flu, new job, moving flat its started to take its toll on my running. I.e. nothing for 2 weeks !

So what better race to train for than the UTSW 100 miler, the UK’s Toughest Footrace.

The Endurancelife Ultra Trail South West exists for three reasons; firstly, to be amongst the most challenging, non stop, off road, point to point trail races in the world. Secondly, to promote the South West Coast Path to a wider global audience and finally, to inspire more people to spend more time in beautiful natural surroundings and to make challenge, adventure and the preservation of wild open spaces an integral part of their every day lives.
The UTSW is a celebration of mans ability to endure, it stands testament to the human beings innate sense of adventure, and his supreme ability to employ mind over matter. The UTSW is intentionally designed to be an exceptionally difficult yet richly rewarding personal challenge that can only be achieved with committed preparation, and extraordinary determination.
Lets get those trainers on an start running !
