HYDRATION – A Revelation | iancorless.com – Photography, Writing, Talk Ultra Podcast | Talk Ultra - Ultra Running | Scoop.it
This is not your normal hydration article.  It is fair to say, that this article has nothing to do about being hydrated. In reality, it is almost certainly about being in the opposite state of hydration. Ten years ago, I was a T-Totaling cyclist, Ironman and runner. I didn't desire alcohol, I had no need…

Scott Kinabalu 2018 Review | iancorless.com – Photography, Writing, Talk Ultra Podcast | Talk Ultra - Ultra Running | Scoop.it
The classic returns! The Scott Kinabalu was my first ever Scott running shoe and at the time, when I was seen wearing them, I always received the comment, “I didn’t know Scott made run shoes?’ That comment continued for some time, but now, Scott are well and truly established in the running world. One could…

inov-8 PARKCLAW 275 GTX REVIEW | iancorless.com – Photography, Writing, Talk Ultra Podcast | Talk Ultra - Ultra Running | Scoop.it
I have to be honest, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to using inov-8’s new shoe offering, the PARKCLAW 275 (I tested the GTX - Gore Tex). Why? Well, inov-8 have always impressed by producing shoes that are specific to a runner’s need - typically, getting a grip in muddy trail. Over recent years though, many…

It was a 0400 wakeup call this morning and an 0530 start. It may sound super early but believe me, the runners weren’t complaining! Most had been in bed before 8pm. The advantages of an early start are simple, it gives the runners a good 2-3 hours before the heat starts to take its toll.…

Day 3 of the 2018 kicked off at 0530 this morning and what lay ahead was a tough and challenging day of hills, technical trail, waterfalls, long dusty and stony roads and relentless beach - all intensified by Costa Rican heat and humidity.
