Mark Neve tells of his latest Marathon; Star Run

I guess some people might think running 8 x 3.28 mile out and back laps as a strange thing to do on a Sunday when an England game is on, but that’s what I did last Sunday. The event was Saturn running’s “Star Runs IV” complete with a fantastic Star Wars medal. I’ve been a […]

Giants Head Marathon – Richard Boese reports back from a hot and hilly one

I have had this race on my radar for a few years, but never got in on time. This time I had signed up to White Star’s Facebook page and knew when race entry was going live and I was damned well going to be online the second that happened. Never mind that this also […]

When Alison Jones suggested running the Edinburgh marathon, I jumped at the chance!  We planned our flights, and Alison booked the accommodation.  In the meantime, I became injured, and then ran London.  After some physiotherapy and a few visits to a sports podiatrist, I was back to training properly, in preparation for Edinburgh… In the […]

The race was […]
