Upcoming Events

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

I am uncertain of my plans for the remainder of 2019 at this stage, but they may include:

  • 8 to 9 June – Continental Centurions Race in Weert, Netherlands
  • 26-29 June – Thames Ring 250
    This race is only held every second year.  I DNF’d at 132 miles in 2017.  The plan in 2019 is to finish it!
  • 13-14 July – Essex 100
    My birthday is on the 14th. What better way to celebrate than by finishing what could be my 27th 100 miler!
  • 26-28 July – KACR 145 miles
    Part of the Canal Slam group of races which starts with the GUCR which I have completed twice, this races follows the Kennet & Avon Canals from Bristol to London
  • 17 to 18 August – UK Centurions Race
    I’m considering the possibility of going to the Isle of Man for the 2019 edition of the UK Centurions Race
  • 24 to 25 August
    I’m also considering the possibility of walking the Liverpool to Leeds Canal Race – which is the third race in the Canal Slam group of races
  • Mid September – Roubaix 28 hour race
    I have done this race in 2014, 2015 and 2017 and would love to go back – but I have heard that it may be cancelled this year.
    Another possibility for mid-September is the Sri Chinmoy 24 hour track race at Tooting Bec in London.  A great opportunity to compete in a 24 hour race without having to do any travelling at all!
  • Early October – St Thibault 24 hour race in France
  • 17 to 20 October – Lon Las CYMRU 250 mile Ultra
    A non-stop race from Holyhead in the North West of Wales to Cardiff.


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 but I don’t think it will be this year)
  • 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!
