Folks, welcome to the ‘ultra’madness blog where you’ll be able to read the mutterings of Chris, Glyn, Wayne and I all the way to the 108 mile Spine Challenge in January 2014 and we hope beyond targeting the Dragons Back in 2015.

We’ve a busy year what with the Lakeland 50 in July, recces of the Spine route, Nav Training that’s much needed in all quarters, not withstanding the weekly training that’s required!

What with various weekly running club sessions, Park Runs, UltraTrail26 events and Lakeland Trails and 50 Recces and add to that the odd Adventure Race & hopefully a few Mountain Marathons were going to be very very busy.

Oh and with Wayne, Glyn and I having babies within 4 months of each other, Chris generally performing taxi duties for his beloved kids, oh and our wonderful supportive wives/partners to keep happy id say we’ve our work cut out.

Committed or just need committing?

Well you be sure to follow us on our little journey through what I’m sure is going to be  provide a few tears but more than a few laughs along the way! I couldn’t wish to be attempting all of this with a different group of guys!

Please feel free to share with your friends and colleagues and add any comments you may have.

Ready, steady, go………..
