Tough Runner Bucks Duathlon

Past results: when I joined goMoxie in January 202, two of my colleagues entered the Tough Runner Bucks duathlon. One being his first duathlon, I thought I would join in supporting him. Although knowing how competitive I am, it was unlikely I would run alongside him should he be slower. I would cheer for him on the finish line if I were going to get faster. I didn’t really pay attention to the route – and take the opportunity to reinforce my top 10 tips – so I was a bit surprised to find a trail run (twice) with mud and hills. I completed the duathlon in 1h 30mn 6sec in the lovely Wendover woods, finishing 2nd in my age category and 6th overall.

Tough Runner UK is excited to introduce the second edition of the Buckinghamshire Duathlon, set in the glorious Wendover Woods. The run route will take you through Wendover woodlands on fire track roads/paths and then on to the fast bike course around the open Aylesbury roads.

The event is open to experienced athletes and beginners. This event will no doubt attract some of the UK’s most talented athletes. This is a race not to be missed. Wendover woods has been given a £4.5million redevelopment and is the perfect venue for a Tough Runner UK Duathlon event.

2021 Marlow Classic 70.3 distance

This will be my first attempt at the Marlow Classic Middle distance. And my third one for a middle distance, aka 70.3. Time to beat, 5 hours, 11 minutes, and 53 seconds.

[Postponed] 2021 JurassicMan Extreme Triathlon

On August 15, I will take part in a new challenge. An IronMan distance triathlon from Brutal Events. LOTS of elevation. What could possibly go wrong?

2021 Blenheim Weekend Warriors

The Blenheim Palace Triathlon, widely regarded as UK’s most stunning triathlon, combines a world-class event experience, with beautiful scenery and a family day out. So stunning I’m registered to do as many triathlons as I can in 2 days.

My bucket list of events

A list of events I’ve completed so far. And some I would like to do in the future.

2021 The Marshman Half race report

After only two half-iron distances so far (Chantilly, Les Sables d’Olonne) and a dream of breaking the 5 hours limit, I drove to Kent to compete in the Marshman half. Here are my race report and results.

2021 The Marshman Half Triathlon

I was meant to race in Windsor on June 13th. Unfortunately, the organisers had to cancel it. I went for a half iron distance instead, The Marshman in Kent.

2021 Marlow Classic race report

This was my first attempt at the Marlow Classic Middle distance. And my third one for a middle distance, aka 70.3. Unfortunately, the swim was cancelled but replaced by a run.

2021 Tough Runner Bucks Duathlon

Tough Runner Bucks Duathlon is a lovely and challenging event set in Wendover Woods. I will be racing it again for the second time hopping for a new PB.
