About this site

Its a work in progress… I will start by backfilling content from various written pieces and coaching sessions from my previous events and activities.  It will take time, so stay with me!  I want this to be a resource for those out there who want to know a little more about how to engage with races and adventure events beyond the Marathon distance.

Inevitably, it will become a place for my opinions on events, kit and training but I’d like to extend an open invitation: If you’ve written content for your own site or want to write something to post here… get in touch.  Even if your views are not the same as mine, I want this to be a balanced set of perspectives to help those as this is something I found missing from my searches over the years.
