Upcoming Events

race-walking-animated-gifMy 2019 up-coming races include:

My 2018 race year is now finished.  My plans for 2019 include:

  • 29 to 30 March – Belfast to Dublin to Belfast
    In 2017 I finished 4th overall and first/only walker in the Dublin to Belfast Ultra.  In 2019 the organisers are offering a double – 346km (114 miles).
  • 9 to 15 May – EMU 6 day race in Hungary
    I’m not 100% certain on this, but if I was to attempt another 6 day race I would prefer to try a course that won’t damage my feet like the Privas race does.
  • 8 to 10 June – Last One Standing England
    As defending champion I have to go back in 2019.
  • 22 to 24 August – Privas 48 hour race
    I don’t want to do the 6 day race in 2019 but am considering the possibility of doing the new 48 hour race held during the last two days of the 6 day event.
  • Mid September – Roubaix 28 hour race
    I have done this race in 2014, 2015 and 2017 and would love to go back.
  • 17 to 20 October – Lon Las CYMRU Ultra (Trans Wales) 250 miles
    A self-supported race from Holyhead to Cardiff down the centre of Wales.  A great opportunity to see Wales 🙂

 

My Bucket List:

These are races that I would like to do one day (finances permitting):

  • Paris to London (I hope to do this for charity at some stage in 2019)
  • Comrades marathon in South Africa
  • Badwater 135 – From the lowest point to the highest point in continental USA
  • The remaining centurions races (USA, Australia, South Africa)
  • Jogle (John o’Groats to Land’s End – 850 miles)
  • Length of New Zealand (1,000 miles)
  • Across the USA (3000+ miles)
  • Swedish Fotrally (walk non-stop until you are the last man standing!)
  • Probably many other events too!
