If you're looking for some Christmas, Birthday or general gift inspiration for the runner in your life, then look no further. I've rounded up some ideas of presents that will definitely be appreciated by ultra and trail runners.
Pitch black mornings and evenings, crisp clear skies filled with a lingering mist, golden leaves floating down from their branches. Autumn is well and truly upon us and, other than the slightly unseasonably mild temperatures, you can tell that we're heading towards Winter.
Last weekend I had opportunity to go along and be support crew for Pip as she took on her first ultra marathon and first 100km run. Keeping water bottles topped up, cheering on runners and running back along sections of the course to keep Pip company, it was a brilliant experience and I captured the race in a series of photos.
Last weekend I headed up to the Lake District for Mountain Run's Ultra Trails weekend. The training weekend is run by Charlie Sproson, an accomplished mountain leader and coach with multiple Bob Graham Rounds, a Charlie Ramsay round and Dragons Back race all on his running CV.
