Fort William was, until this weekend, uncharted territory for me. I’d never been to the Outdoor Capital of Scotland, not that I’d needed the excuse, but the opportunity to check out a new place and a new type of event was too good to pass up.
The Foxtrail Half Marathon race is a beautifully-planned circuit around the local geography bringing a great mix of terrain, crossing hard-packed trail, thick mud, beach sand, streams and forest roads.
Total Warrior, the return to a huge team event packed with mud and tough obstacles. The course was the usual favourites from last year, with an electrifying new challenge!
Prime Four Beast Race at Loch Ness is set in the most stunning OCR location of anywhere I’ve seen, the whole event focuses on light-hearted team fun.
20 miles. 200 obstacles. Analysing Rat Race’s Dirty Weekend, the world’s biggest obstacle course race.
Great for first-timers to elites, the Edinburgh Kilomathon runs from Leith to Murraryfield stadium for the closest thing I’ll get to an Olympic finish.

2016 was an incredible year – a year of highs; first-time experiences and personal bests.
