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 39 ultras over the past ten 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.
If you want to contact me my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org

The ‘Triple Crown’ is the unofficial name given to the total time of the three races on the West Highland Way route completed in one year.
Someone started a ‘Triple Crown’ web site a couple of years ago but it wasn’t updated last year.
The Triple Crown has been going since 2007 though in that year it was a lot harder as the Devils race was 5 weeks after the Fling and 2 weeks before the whw.
Since 2008 it has been a bit easier in that there are 7-8 weeks between the Fling and whw and the same between the whw and the devils.
So according my reckoning 19 people ran all three races this year. If you can see any mistakes please let me know.
Congratulations to Thomas and Debs for their three superb runs, with 5 pb’s between them.
I know I probably shouldn’t compare my 2 Triple Crowns 2009 & 2011 as it doesn’t make very good reading but here it is …
That’s almost 10hrs slower over the 3 races. Not good.
But at least I’m 8th on the all time list of the 47 people who have completed the ‘Triple Crown.’
If you’d like to see the full spreadsheet then please have a look but remember it is unofficial and there may be mistakes!
