Off for a wee run!


In July 2016 , I ran part of the West Highland Way with  a bunch of Londoners, run 30 miles, camp out, run 30 miles.  We had great weather for it and the banter was good.

Video highlights here – West Highland Way 2016

This crew have now set up a challenge ‘run for love’.

I’m running the first stage of a 2,000km run / ride from Sarajevo to London in July.

Stage 1 – 220 miles over 6 days – Sarajevo to Zagreb. 35 miles at least per day in 35+ degree heat through the Balkan mountains. bring it on.

The why is all here –

Blog – blog , watch this film and check out the Run for Love website here.  

Also a good write up in the independent today, (25 April)

There’s other companies helping out, so far I have got my running kit from these guys-


Having tried the t-shirt and jacket a few times now, the quality is amazing. #bestjacketever

There will be a big party finish in the Surrey Hills on Sunday 16th July If you fancy a weekend in London, some running, some food, some fun, let me know.
