super sixes 6 of the best...?

In recent years we have tried all manner of events from zombie runs to swim-runs, from extreme mountain marathons to multi-day adventure races, from swimming in muddy puddles to swimming along the Thames.

We put together a completely subjective list of events that we enjoyed so much that we would definitely want to do them again this year. Basically it is an editors pick of events that we liked.

1The Richmond Spring Riverside 10k Run

We prefer running the trails than running on the roads, but the Riverside 10k is a nice middle ground. You get to explore the Thames river side around the lovely Kingston, Hampton, Richmond, all whilst running a fast and flat 10k.  Perfect.

2Salomon Trail Marathon Wales

Well we only did the half marathon, and that was tough enough.  Proper mixed terrain trail running, awesome scenery, and a river to swim in afterwards to recover.  It's a beautiful part of the country, so take a weekend, stay over somewhere and make the most of it.

3Breca Gower SwimRun

Another tough event, but one of the most spectacular parts of the country and a course that makes the most of it.  This is a long day out, but with this kind of scenery it is definitely worth the effort.

4Velothon Wales

Who doesn't love riding a fully closed road sportive? The Velothon Wales is well organised, has 3 distance options, and covers the scenic south and mid Wales countryside, making it one of the nicest rides you will do.

5Buttermere Open Water Swim

The Lake District is one of our favourite places, and Buttermere is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown.  Swimming in the crystal clear waters, surrounded by trees and mountains on a (hopefully) glorious sunny day is an experience like no other.  If you like swimming, you will love this event.

6The OMM Mountain Marathon

We have done the OMM a few times now, and still want to keep going back for more.  From raging winds to glorious blue sky days, you never know what you're going to get on the OMM and that is what makes it special.  Do the score course so you can make it as hard as you want to, but it is never easy and is always rewarding.
