Ironman 70.3 Edinburgh 2017

5th place – 4:06:42

I said it countless times over the months and weeks leading into this race, and I will say it again now: I never believed I would get to race at home in Scotland at this level and so to actually have a day out in front of family and friends, on ‘home’ roads and barely a stones throw away from home… well, it was very cool. It genuinely was. We had a cracking little Pro field assembled too, and although a podium would’ve been the icing on the cake, in reality I was always going to be more than pleased with a top 5 result to show for my efforts, which all said and done – is what I achieved.

11th place – 4:03:40

After many months away, it was finally time to dig out my race kit, apply some number tattoos and toe a start line once more. After an initial five week stint of training in both San Diego, California and Boulder, Colorado I finished the trip by heading to the beautiful vineyards of northern California and Napa Valley where the event took place for my season opener.

OTILLO Swimrun World Championships 2016

9th place team – 8:57:21

10km swim / 65km run / 26 Island crossings 

Having raced Ironman Hawaii I was fairly sure I had already reached the limit of what my own toughest racing experiences might ever be. I don’t think I could have been more wrong! OTILLO is without a shadow of doubt the hardest event I have taken part in. This race is, simply put, incredible.
