Interview: Burton & Dixon

Due to injury, I unfortunately had to defer my Cape Wrath Ultra entry to 2025. However, with the time already booked off work and inlaws visiting to help with child care, I was fortunate enough to be able to volunteer on the event team for a second time. While it was obviously a shame notContinue reading “Interview: Burton & Dixon”

Interview: Heather & Geoffrey

If you’ve spent any time reading this blog you’ll know we’ve done some unusual races. Escape From Meriden is a rather unique event where, starting from the village of Meriden (allegedly the geographical center of England), you have 24 hours to “escape” as far as you can. You can take part as an individual, aContinue reading “Interview: Heather & Geoffrey”

Interview: Allan & George

We first met father and son combo Allan and George Parkin at God’s Own Backyard Ultra last year, and since then we keep bumping in to them at events from the tip of Wales to Orkney (where we randomly ended up on the same campsite as them for several days after the event too 😲).Continue reading “Interview: Allan & George”

Interview: Felicity & Alan

CP3, at Bargrennan near Glen Trool,Continue reading “Interview: Felicity & Alan”

Last week they took on their first 100 miler – the Centurion Running North Downs Way 100 – and we caught up withContinue reading “Interview: Gary & Cheryl”

Interview: Harriet & Karl

I’m sure many of you, like us, spent much of the second week of January following the progress of the Spine Race 2022. Known as “Britain’s most brutal”, it covers 268 miles along the remote and exposed Pennine Way from Edale in the Peak District to the finish at Kirk Yetholm, just over the borderContinue reading “Interview: Harriet & Karl”

Interview: Ashley & Shelley

Miles Together is all about running with others, whether that’s your partner, family, friends, or even your dog! This is the first of (hopefully) many blog posts where we get the chance to chat to other runners, get to know them a little bit, and find out what running together means to them. This timeContinue reading “Interview: Ashley & Shelley”
