Can’t Stop The Running – Mark Neve completes back to back marathon’s with the help of David Guetta

Can’t Stop The Running – Mark Neve completes back to back marathon’s with the help of David Guetta

I’m not quite sure what possessed me to sign up for Saturn Running’s back to back marathons, other than to quote The Cranberries album, “everybody else is doing it so why can’t we” and maybe a need to see what if? Most of the marathon runners I spend time around at Saturn and Phoenix events […]

I had entered the Chicago marathon ballot last year in my quest to finish the Six Marathon Major and been unsuccessful.  Just as I was entering the ballot this year I thought I’d just check the Good For Age time and discovered that it was 20 minutes slower than for London.  A quick check of […]

Claire Rowse reports back from her 26.2 mile debut at Bournemouth

My marathon journey began near on a year ago when two of my running friends (one being Kirsty Darcy, fellow SJ member) and I were, surprise, surprise, unsuccessful in the London ballot so we decided to enter another marathon and Bournemouth was our marathon of choice as it was on around the same time as […]
