Run To The Sea 2020

by Ultraviolet Running

Its been a challenging 2020 for obvious reasons and official ‘in person’ events have been thin on the ground. That said I found my way to take on the Run To The Sea in October 2020. A run from Ringwood to Hengistbury Head on the South Coast. Read my review here.

I’ve added a page for my running gear. Shoes, tech etc. So far building some reviews and started with shoes. Happy to share opinions on any of the gear I use whilst running.

GVRAT 2020

19 Aug – I completed the 1000 mile target for the GVRAT today. I won’t, make it to the full 1270 miles double crossing, but 1000 miles and counting is a real achievement.

30 June – i completed the GVRAT today! 635 miles in 61 days. So proud of this achievement. You can do great things if you put you mind and conviction behind it.
