The Corralejo Tourist Run Routes

the corralejo tourist run routes

Fuerteventura was a very relaxing (and much needed) weeks holiday for us but there’s only so much lounging one can do in a day! Every afternoon James grabbed his trainers (I tagged along 4 days out of 7) and we got some holiday running in. Thinking of going to Corralejo and want to keep your exercise up then take a look at how packed in the miles on holiday.

Corralejo Fuerteventura

a week in corralejo fuerteventura
Fuerteventura, the second largest of the Canary Islands, is home to many things; windmills, goats, miles of beautiful sand dunes and us last week as we headed south for (what we thought would be) a week of sunshine, relaxing and general holidaying. We thought we’d let you know what we thought of our time in Corralejo, the Islands busiest resort.

Do You Parkrun Yet?

Parkrun is something that we mention, a lot, and if you follow our Instagram you’ll see pictures captured by the photographers at our local park run - a lot. It’s fair to say it’s our favourite running event to take part and we wanted to make sure all of you out there can get involved and enjoy it as much as we do!

Running Gear: Trainers

Perhaps the most important part of any runner’s kit is their shoes. With that in mind I thought I’d share my current shoe selection with you. When investing in a new pair of running shoes it is important to know what you want from the shoe. Are they are to train in? Race in? Are they to run road? Trails? Or even fells? All these things need to be taken into consideration before you buy.

The Best Route up Kinder Scout

We’re very lucky to live within a 40 minute drive of the Peak District, it might be a vast area of hills and bleak moorland but it’s beautiful and provides the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors. Kinder Scout is the Peaks' highest mountain, yes it is a mountain standing at 2,087ft (that’s 636m), and for us it’s the peak that's closest to home so as you can imagine we’re climbed it a fair few times!

Race Roundup: Manchester Half Marathon

This year marked the first time that a Half Marathon has taken place on the same day as the very well known Manchester 10km, so what better time to try it than for the inaugural run? I, along with 5,774 other runners, took to the streets of Manchester and if you're thinking of trying it too then here's what you need to know.
