Best Ultra Run Experience:

"OUT&BACK".ie:Completed Hi-Tec Badwater 1994 race, then back to Badwater to complete the "DEATH VALLEY 300"


Weird Experience:

Seeing Space-ships--Ghost Waggons,The Old Red Devil, Vintage cars--Bank notes and Christmas cards on trees etc, in most of my Death Valley races,Yes of course hallunications!


Challenge:

With out any doubt it must be the "Death Valley 300" which I completed in 1994,becoming joint 5th to achieve this challenge. Why do it? Just had to do it, couldn't resist the challenge


Why:

It is the challenge doing something that people say cant/shouldn't be done by seniors,my aim is to prove that it is possible and "enjoyable"


Why badwater:

I race in Badwaters because it is one of the toughest races in the world,well organised,with comradeship amongst the competitors second to none.
