About

All Hail The Trail is a website dedicated to the exciting world of trail running with a focus on race reports, routes, training, nutrition, gear and any other running thoughts!

Life is a constant learning experience so I plan to share my successes (and failures) here in an attempt to build a repository of running information.  Despite the name, this isn’t necessarily a trail-only zone – variety is the spice of life!

I’m a late starter in the running world starting around June 2014, but this soon developed into an all encompassing activity.  I spent 2015 building around the 10km-half marathon distance but soon knew I wanted to take this further. 2016 saw me run my first couple of marathons, a couple of 50kms and a 50 miler.  In 2017 I’m continuing with some more ultra distances…..

I was lucky enough to be selected for Men’s Running magazine’s Project Trail feature which meant lots of free gear, being featured monthly in the mag and, best of all, training from Team GB Ultrarunner Robbie Britton.  I’ve picked up a huge amount of tips on training, nutrition and mental preparation so will be sharing my thoughts and experiences on this site.

I’m also hoping to gain a few more skills so courses I’ve currently completed are below (obviously a bit light at the moment)
