The Mile - David Tett (

Running is my favourite sport. I have done it for years and can now go out for hours at a time without training, and consider this to be a real privilege. I enjoy long, slow runs, ideally in the hills, sometimes with a small pack, although I do enjoy a good shuttle session too and I’ve occasionally gone barefoot.

Below are some of the running challenges I’ve completed, articles I’ve written and links which might be useful.

Tim’s Running Projects

  • Running the Tube – The length of every London Underground train line. Up to 45 miles at a time, exploring our capital. Part of the Greater London Triathlon.
  • Everest Run – Running up 5,000 flights of stairs to the height of Mount Everest at the Royal Geographical Society.
  • The Mile – For a while I had the idea of trying to run a fast mile.
  • Running to the Ocean – Nowhere in the UK is further than 70 miles from the sea. I ran from my London flat towards the ocean…

Tube Running Articles

In 2010, I ran from the beginning to end of every London Underground train line with my girlfriend at the time (now wife), Laura. Here are some pieces I wrote about it:

Running Links

  • Long Distance Walking Association (LDWA) – I can’t recommend their Challenge Events highly enough. Brilliantly British, simple adventure races for a few quid including food and drinks.
  • Sleep Monsters – Good website for finding adventure races.
  • Rob Cousins – The first I met Rob, I found out he’d run from Birmingham to London (140 miles). We’ve been friends ever since.
  • Dean Karnazes – This guy runs lots of really long distances.
  • The Wadi Bih Relay – There are thousands of events and I couldn’t possibly list them all but this one in Oman/UAE is fantastic.
