The Trionium UK Wife-Carrying Race

Posted: 22/09/2016 at 17:47
This is the 10th edition of the race, which is tougher than you might imagine (depending on your strength and on the weight of your 'wife'). It's a lot of fun - but probably the toughest two-three-four or five minutes of exercise you'll ever do!

Last-placed finishers win the Pot Noodle and tin of dog food, while the oldest carrier gets a jar of Bovril. Carrier of the heaviest wife gets a pound of sausages, 'for strength.' All finishers get medals, a mini beer keg and t-shirts with their names on. Oh, and lifetime bragging rights.

Anyone interested?

This is usually popular (as well as for the Wife Carrying Race that precedes the start). Anyone interested?

This is back for more more hills, terrible weather, fancy dressing, hangovers, yet more hills and general lunacy, and is popularly known as 'The best way to start the New year.' Anyone interested?

Michelle, I think I've answered your question directly. Matt... ah, if only you could see our costs. Please check this useful page for a guide to organising a race....

Bleuch: I was on course for 1000 miles until the end of May, when the dreaded achilles tendonitis struck. Just hobbling back to health, and reckon I'll be lucky to get to 1000km... Maybe next year, eh?

Good luck everyone else!

Final ever Greensand Marathon on 9 October 2016

Posted: 07/09/2016 at 15:57

Due to rising costs of staging the race, it has become uneconomic to continue to organise the Greensand Marathon and Half (it has always been a loss-making race - now the losses have become too great to bear). So, the 2016 edition of the Greensand Marathon and Half Marathon on 9 October 2016 will be the last and final ever. 

So, this is your last chance to race the Greensand Marathon, which has regularly placed in the top 20 races in Britain during its eight year-history, and which was voted 'Best Marthon in Britain' in 2010, as well as the last chance to run the Greensand Half.

We'd like the race to go out on a triumphant, positive high - so please come along and join the party!

Thanks for the kind words Peter. It's a shame that it can't go on (it has been voted Britain's best marathon, after all), but the numbers just don't add up.
