Balaton 6 Day Race, Hungary May 8th – 14th

I’m really looking forward to my run in the upcoming Balaton 6 Day race in Western Hungary.  This is just my sixth 6 Day event since 2006 when I made my winning debut in Monaco.  In between times I have done a 7 Day, two 8 Days and a 1000 miler to keep me busy.

The Balaton event is one of the best with a great location on the shores of Lake Balaton, an enthusiastic organising team and a strong entry of 56 runners from 16 countries.  Last time I competed there in 2011, I won with 518 miles, a new overall British Road Record and World Age-Group record too.  Probably a greater distance will be required to win it this year!
