His mobile number is 16264299217. So if you want to meet with him, run a stage, help crew or can give him a bed for the night... Please call that number. Between 8 AM and 6 PM please leave only TEXT MESSAGES.

The Arrowhead Ultra is taking place at the moment and last weekend saw two events, The Paul Selby 12/24 in South Africa and the Houston Ultra Weekend in Texas. I hope to have some news up soon...

To Be A Runner
Try to be a runner, and try all the time to surpass and go beyond all that is bothering you and standing in your way. Be a real runner so that ignorance, limitation and imperfection will all drop far behind you in the race.

People run

People have always been running around. If it wasnt chasing down locomotive food then running after thieves has been an option to man since he first mastered the two legged position. Very little has changed in the last 20,000 years except footware and speed and of course reasons why we run. It is generally agreed that exercise can promote a healthier body if care and understanding are utilised. Just as a tool gets worn in to the job at hand so eventually does the body quit whining and begin to enjoy the freedom and the fresh air though its true in our security conscious world, more and more people turn to the treadmill to get their miles in. Recently a new world record for 24 hour treadmill run has been set by Tony Mangan 216.37 kms. It wasnt until the 1800's that long distance running or walking began to attract the eyes of serious athletes.
