It gets a bit scary when 2015 ain’t even over yet and already you have already entered 460.2 miles worth of races for 2016.  The Race 1k in 2016 plan is coming together, especially now I just got a wait list spot to do Thunder Run 24 hour as a solo runner, exciting but terrifying at the same time.  The first race in 2016 will be 101st race in total, not bad for just over two years of running.  Next year’s confirmed races so far are:


With 40 parkruns, the 5 Mystery 5k’s and the Seaside Run series I get to 623.4 miles so it’s getting closer.  Am also planning on entering the following races:


Hype Park Winter Run

Rhyl 10

Liverpool Spring 10k

Liverpool RnR Marathon (I’ve entered the half but waiting to change it to the full)

Race to the Stones

Sefton Park 5

North Wales Half

Livewire Mile

Chester Marathon

Avengers 5k

Avengers 10k

Avengers Half

Rock n Roll Las Vegas Marathon (I can dream)


Liverbird Marathon (to start and end the year with a race)


If I enter all this lot I only need to find another 153.4 miles which is pretty doable to fins because there’s loads of races without dates yet.  It actually looks like this 1,000 mile thing may really be possible.  My biggest challenge was finding enough races, even if I’m ill or injured and have to walk all these races I’ll still do complete them all.
