Upcoming Events

race-walking-animated-gifMy 2018 up-coming races include:

I’m finished racing for 2017 and am currently taking a break.  My plans for 2018 will depend on when the Privas 6 day race is.  That will be my main race for the year and everything else will be planned around that.

  • 31 March 2018 – Belfast to Dublin Ultra
    The reverse of the Dublin to Belfast Ultra in which I finished fourth overall in 2016
  • 19-20 May 2018 – Continental Centurions Race
    I did this race in 2016 where I set NZ records for 100 miles and 24 hours. A great course and I’m looking forward to going back again.
  • 9-10 June 2018 – Last Man Standing (UK)
    The idea of this race is that competitors have to run (or in my case walk) a 4 mile loop every hour, starting on the hour.  If you don’t finish within the hour, you are out.  The winner is “the last man standing”
  • 1-3 July 2018 – Swedish Fotrally (maybe)
    This is another endurance event where all competitors have to walk at exactly 6 1/2 kilometers per hour.  If you fall below that pace, you are out.  The winner is the last person still walking.  In 2017, the winner walked for 72 hours!
  • August 2018? – 6 jours de France (again)
    My third attempt to break the NZ 6 day record after going close in 2016 and failing miserably in 2017.
  • Charity walk – probably a three day point to point walk,
    More details soon.

 

My Bucket List:

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

  • 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!
