“It’s safe to say I’m fully converted to trail running,” said BBC Radio 2 Sports Reporter Vassos Alexander when he joined me for a run last week. Whoop whoop! Another person addicted to the exciting, adventurous world of off road running! Find out why Vassos is addicted to trail running in our video here.

His head is not really that much bigger than mine in real life, but this is the main thing my Stamford Striders running club friends are ribbing me about right now! Ha ha ha!

 

Vassos and CM Mar17

We ran 7.75 miles on muddy Stamford paths and wooded tracks, and Vassos gave our town a “10 out of 10 for views” so that’s awesome (wait ’til he does the Dragon’s Back Race across Wales this May though!)

He is off to do the 80k Eco Trail de Paris this weekend, so good luck Vass! And thanks for joining us for a super run. His running book, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now‘ is an awesome read, and he’s just started a new one about ultra running with some really truly awesome trail runners featured, so I’ll keep you posted…
