Spartan Race Ultra Beast Edinburgh

In July I ran the Spartan Ultra Beast in Nine Mile Burn in the south of Edinburgh. It was my second Ultra Beast after the Ultra Beast Hawaii I did last year with my friends from you are an adventure story.

I was running on my own, although I knew some people that were also racing and stayed at the same hotel.
As expected we had lovely Scottish summer weather, which means cold temperatures, heavy rain, wind and fog. Perfect conditions to test my wetsuit gear, and it turned out to be the right decision to wear it.

Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon review

End of May 2017 I ran the Moonlight Half Marathon with my Dad in Jesolo, just a bit North East of Venice, Italy. Here is my review:

Travel & Accessibility to theΒ Moonlight Half Marathon

Jesolo is a beach resort area North East of Venice in Italy. It is about 30 minutes from Venice Airport. The town is very far spread out along the 20km beach, with one main street. We had a car in Jesolo, but a lot of people ride bikes to get around town.
The finish line, bib number pick up and bag drop is located in the town center close to the piazza internationale. There are large parking spots 5-15 minutes walking distance away. The Start isolated in the West of the peninsula, so Busses takes the runners to the start.
You can also have someone drop you off at the start. There is an extra bag drop there.
