Training for my First Ever Ultra Marathon

19th December 2021

We’ve set Sarah a few challenges over the last year but none will be as daunting as her next one, completing ultra marathon in Thailand. Before heading off across the globe, Sarah caught up with ultra runner Paul Tierney, who gave her some advice on how best to prepare ahead of a punishing 54km UTMB event in Thailand.

Paul is a great person to speak to about this as he has previously completed the Lakeland 100, a 100-mile ultra marathon through trails in the Lake District National Park; he completed the race in 20 hours 42 minutes and he now works as a running coach based in Cumbria, specialising in natural running techniques.
