First of all, here’s a film of the event, it’ll give you an idea of what to expect from the route.

Hell Down South 2014

by Dave Sherman 10 miles of trail running in the brisk January chill with a short wade through some water at the end… That was the mental image I had of Hellrunner going by the website’s description and promo video and I thought it would be a nice gentle start to 2014, but little did I know just what the Devil had in store for us…. To give a bit of background, in the couple of weeks prior to this event Britain had been suffering constant storms with loads of…

by Jean Marc Dalle On September 22nd, I ran the “Cross du Figaro” in Saint Cloud‘s National Park (an extraordinary place just outside Paris).

The 41st edition of the Cross Du Figaro New Balance took…

However, I made it across that finish line with a great big smile upon my winded face. I started near the beack so the first couple of miles were very slow; trying to create a route through the crowds of slow starters/walkers was not easy. Though, once…

The Great South Run, 2013

by Steve Kimberley So my first time running the Great South Run was also my first trip to the nautical city of Portsmouth, and fortunately neither experience turned out to be a disappointment. After turning up a tad late, I attempted to grab a few minutes extra warm up with the rest of the TrekandRun team only to get picked up by the Channel 5 cameras, who broadcast us having a rather unorthodox warm-up strut in front of the elite athletes. As the race started, it were as if by…
