The trails are hard and technical compared to the UK and Ireland, but there’s some great running and outstanding views. Let’s take a look…
I mixed it up today on the weekly long run, by modifying my ‘high peaks’ route, which links three of the highest peaks in the Mourne Mountains to include scrambling routes wherever possible. I had a lot of fun until the thunder storm 😲
36.5km, 2403m evaluation. Ronda dels Cims training is well underway!

We’re having great weather at the moment in Northern Ireland. It’s a bit windy, but easy on the eye and lovely dry ground.
Here’s the weekend long run 🤙🏼
Last night I went for a middle distance run instead of a short fell race. It was a great night for the hills, although I forgot my headtorch and finished in the dark!
This run started out with 10 miles on mostly trail, before returning through the mountains. A very windy day.
A frosty day with magical views. 31km, 2807m climbing, 6hrs 3mins!
Slieve Donard, Binnian, Bearnagh, Commedagh.
It has been a good few months since I have been running in the mountains, as my training this year has all been focused on Rotterdam Marathon. Thankfully that experience is behind me, so it’s back to the hills for the rest of the year! I will now focus on building up my training to focus on some local mountains events, and my second ‘A’ race of 2015, the CCC at the UTMB.
For the first run I opted for a slooooooww recce of section 3 of the Denis Rankin Round. My legs were sore, but what more could I expect just 7 days out from Rotterdam!
Sit back and enjoy….!
It’s Christmas and there’s snow on the mountain tops. Couple that fact with a new GoPro from Santa and I figured it was about time you all joined me for a run! Enjoy 🙂
