STEYNING STINGER by BOSH Member UltraLuke

  2,500ft Elevation 3/3/13 7:45 Arriving at Steyning School in good time, myself and fellow Bosh Runner Andy make our way to the registration desk inside.

I dropped off my bag and as I was having a look around, I saw a big, warm, stretching / massage room aswell as toilets and changing rooms. Outside by the registration tent...

By Luke Ashton RunLiverpool Marathon  07:15 After plenty water and a breakfast of Oats, Hemp, Pea Protein, banana and an Avocado I think we set to grease up our feet and tape up our toes!

Surprisingly I’m not as nervous as my usual races and think Sunday has took them all onboard today! My very close friend Helen is r...
