Nuffield Health Eton Sprints Triathlon – 22nd May 2016

Trek and Run were supported during this event by; Salba Chia  Helly Hansen Oakley & Decathlon Photos by www.sportcam.net, Dave Sherman and Laura Kimberley  Without question, Dorney Lake is one of my favourite venues for triathlon events. The water is clear (well… as clear as open water can be) allowing you to follow the underwater rope holding the buoys in place (thereby making sighting incredibly easy), the cycle involves simple laps following a reasonably flat path around the outside of the lake, and the run section involves 1 or 2 laps of a flat out-and-back alongside the lake almost guaranteeing a fast finish. The venue itself also offers an indoor…

Human Race’s Steelman Olympic Distance and Challenge Distance Triathlon

The distances had only slightly increased from my previous Sprint-Plus triathlon at Castle Cholmondeley, however I’d be covering a 1.5km swim, 42km cycle and a 10km run one…

Human Race’s Eton Sprints Triathlon– 23rd May 2015

Trek and Run were supported during this event by; Salba Chia  Push Nutrition and Tom Tom Photos by Laura Kimberley, Hayley Lloyd and Sport Cam Part 1, by Dave Sherman For some strange reason I love setting myself crazy challenges which initially seem unachievable to me, so with that in mind I decided to designate 2015 as my ‘year of the Triathlon’ with the end goal to complete a Half Ironman triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile cycle and 13.1 run).  Last year at York’s Castle Howard, my first ever…

Human Race’s London Cycle Sportive – 10th May 2015

Human Race’s London Cycle Sportive – 10th May 2015 Photos by Dave Sherman and Sportcam.net  It was a chilly morning as I arrived at Dulwich College’s car park. Without a doubt Dulwich is one of my favourite parts of South London with its old-fashioned village feel, quiet roads and of course the beautiful Dulwich Park which I’ve run round a few times during 5k and 10k races over the past few years. However this time I wouldn’t be running through the leafy pathways but instead joining thousands of cyclists as…

The Human Race Lidl Kingston Breakfast Run

The Human Race Lidl Kingston Breakfast Run, 15th March 2015 Part 1 by Stuart Obbard Today was the Lidl sponsored Kingston Breakfast Run, with distances on offer of 8.2 miles, 16 miles or 20 miles. This race has been going for over 20 years and is famous for giving out a mug to all finishers rather than a medal. Whilst on the course a lady told me that she still has and uses her mug from when she raced this 20 years ago. I hope I manage to get at…

Human Race’s Off-Road Series – MudMan

Human Race’s Off-Road Series – MudMan – 7th March 2015 Photos by Dave Sherman, Chris Atkinson and www.sportcam.net As I arrived at the Army Training ground in Camberley to a chilly wind and grey skies I had a feeling this event was going to be just as tough as the other two in the Winter Series had been. It wasn’t raining but as I started walking towards the registration tent I was greeted with muddy puddle after muddy puddle and it was clear this was another event which would be…

Human Race’s ‘Race your Pace’ Half Marathon 2015

By Dave Sherman – Saturday 28th February Photos by Dave Sherman, Laura Kimberley and www.sportcam.net Some runners enjoy hilly courses and the variety and challenges they bring while others will avoid roads and pathways at all costs instead opting for nice scenic country trails, however if you’re bumping up the distance while marathon training or hunting for a personal best then you can’t beat a fast, flat, paved course. With that in mind I’d entered Human Race’s Race Your Pace Half Marathon with one goal in mind – it was time…

Human Race’s Off-Road Series – IceMan

As 7th February drew closer I found myself worrying at the prospect of completing Human Race’s IceMan trail Duathlon event.  11 weeks previously I’d tackled the 10km trail run at WildMan and enviously watched the Duathletes while wishing I’d pushed myself that bit harder and taken on the full challenge.  In most events Team Trek and Run choose to enter we’ll opt for the longest distance available – there’s nothing macho about that, we just feel if you’re going to take part in an event you might as well experience…

Human Race’s Off-Road Series – WildMan – 22nd November 2014

One of the main mistakes some runners make as the winter chill draws in, especially when considering a spring marathon, is to decrease training due to the cold weather. It’s easy to offer excuses such as ‘It’s too cold outside’ or ‘It’s nearly Christmas… I’ll start my training in the new year’. However, to build the best possible base for a spring marathon, keeping active over the winter months is essential and cross country events are one of the best ways I’ve found of keeping my training on schedule as…
