My challenge was to race a mile for every day of 2016. I did that by August so now it's a 1,000km by the end of the year!

A Runner Not a Fat Dad!
I've been running for more than 10 years now. After a few races early on, I got the bug for the competitive side of running.

The Moira Fund?
Moira Jones was murdered in 2008, in Queen's Park in Glasgow, close to both our homes. Moira, her brother Grant, my brother Paul and I, were all at school together in Staffordshire.

Event details

366 Miles of Running Races

366 miles of races in a year?
In 2015 I ran 64 races covering 333 miles. That meant running pretty much every weekend, midweeks where possible, and included 2 Ultra marathons. So it is was never going to be easy to get an extra 30 miles and reach my target.

But I did manage it by August! So now for the rest of the year, my target is 1,000km of races for 2016! That will include 2 more Ultramarathons, 2 marathons, and lots of other races to keep clocking up the miles (or kilometres!).

Thanks for all the support. Here's hoping I can continue to stay injury free!
