Apologies for thread from the dead, but I ran 19.50 at my local parkrun at the start of the month. Garmin/Strava state 4.99km, but given I had ten seconds in hand, and that it was an offroad parkrun, ...

Thanks to my mate, I now know a lot more about Billy Yang than I used to! Very Happy

The Billy Yang podcast is worth a listen - some interesting guests and conversations.

I just bought myself a couple o ...

Not sure horses are to be spoken about in triathlon right now...

I did Race to the Tower on Saturday. 53 odd miles of Cotswold Way, which is hilly. Hilly as fk. But then I knew this going, so no complaints there. Anyway, if you can be arsed, grab a beverage of choi ...

I think the five year thing had grown to a position where in two to three years time they were not going to need a ballot, as they made good on their promise to everyone! So, instead of making good an ...

They offered the pay-fee and get into a second ballot option last year. I went for it because I wanted the extra 0.00000001% chance and the top looked nice. I'll be honest, the charity donation was se ...

I must admit, the switch down in time for me (currently late 30s) is tough. I was planning a 40+ GFA tilt, so adding the fact you now have to be that age on qualifying race date, not VLM race date, me ...

Agree on the poles - I blistered after about 8 hours on a 24 hour race and ended up wearing gloves in mid-summer. Should have trained more with them, and have done so this year.

Mine are telescopin ...

Meadow of Fame. Be very interested to know any more you can tell us, even if that has to be via PM. Funds simply rule out anything like the Big Backyard or that hilly one Canadians struggle in, so I'm ...

I too enjoyed the snow this weekend. 90km on the South Downs Way on Saturday, on a bike mind, but still not for the feint of heart or those who enjoy feeling in their toes - I'll let you know when it ...
