In early 2017 I was lucky enough to win a competition by Threshold Sports in Running Magazine. The prize was a place in their Race to the King ultra marathon, a double marathon from Arundel in Sussex to Winchester Cathedral and coaching from ultra marathon runner and coach, Kerry Sutton.

This was to be my first long-distance ultra marathon and real challenge for me in terms of building up to running further than I’ve ever run before, handling nutrition on the day and other aspects such as kit. I wrote an article for Running Magazine about my training and build up to the event. See the article below and in Issue 201 of Running Magazine.
