I set up this blog (Oct 06) to record my training and thoughts in preparing for the 2007 WHW Race – a 95 mile ultra race from Milngavie to Fort William.
I have now run 47 ultras over the past twelve years including the whw 6 times and you can read all about them, watch my race videos and lots more by using the tabs at the top of the blog.

Jez Bragg won the new race and a good number of whw family had really good runs. Here is a summary of their results ….
