The IMR Team had a fantastic time at the FoxTrail 6hr Nocturnal Marathon in December. Jo Newans came 3rd in a hotly contested podium with a tremendous 60km totalled. Our relay team, comprised of IMR coach Aisling alongside IMR Team Athletes Eóin Lennon and John Busby, managed not only first mixed but first team overall…
We were down at the first of the Foxtrail Winter Series this weekend, and saw lots of Improve my Running runners down there. We are sponsoring the series, so we’ll be along to all the races, and we’ve put in a couple of prizes for runners too. If you see us there, come say ‘hello’.…
Another great result for IMR runner Jo Newens, 2nd lady and 1st Vet in the Ochill Ultra 50 mile race. Sounds like it was a boggy slippy day, so well done!!
And he’s done it.. 200 miles across Great Britain and joint first place, retaining his crown from last year. He finished in a time of 47 hours and 6 minutes, finishing jointly with Spencer Bunn. Well done Neil Rutherford, another huge achievement from a brilliant athlete.

Rachel Newstead as been training with us here at Improve my Running. Its all coming together, and she scooped up a win at the Dundee DRAM marathon this weekend. It was hot and windy conditions, so not an easy day out, but a great result for her.
Aisling from Improve my Running successfully completed the Highland Fling 53 mile ultra marathon in April. The Highland Fling takes in beautiful scenery along the West Highland Way from Milngavie to Tyndrum, along the beautiful shores of Loch Lomond. Well done Aisling!
We are really excited about Richard Meade’s achievement at the Edinburgh marathon. Richard had been struggling with injuries before coming to see us, and had been training towards the marathon. He came in 5th place with a time of 2.38. Well done Richard!!
Congratulations to IMR runners Ross Grieve and Neil Rutherford who both put in strong performances at the Cataran ultra this weekend. Great preparation and confidence for upcoming priority races. Ross taking 14 th place, well done Team, supported by fellow team mate Elaine Omand.
Congratulations to IMR runner Neil Rutherford on his epic finish at the uk’s toughest race. In horrific conditions and with bad luck, getting stuck for 9 hours on top of one of the highest points, he still managed a top 20 finish. Absolutely amazing strength and willpower, well done.
