Tenerife, Anaga Walk, Good Friday procession

I’m off to the North-eastern end of the Island – the Anaga mountains – which always seem highly rated but I never visited. I also wanted to see the […]

A piece of cake – Ruabon Moor and Llangollen

My blogs have two main purposes – to promote Trail Running and to promote the wonderful and varied countryside within a short distance of Chester. Today I revisited one of my favourite areas to try and patch-in a short stretch to make an ideal training circuit. This area also happens to be one of the […]
