Who could be better to have on Wild Ginger Running Trail Chat at 8:30pm tonight, the week before the infamous Dragon’s Back Race than Joe Faulkner who has completed the race as many times as it has been run! He is going back to Wales for his 5th attempt next week! youtu.be/iQutBfqZRHA

Joe did the first ever race back in 1992, then came back for the reunion in 2012, he couldn’t resist a hat-trick in 2015 and he was on a roll by 2017! He has remained strong and a force to be reckoned with throughout all of them, and despite laughing in my face when I asked him what training he did last time we spoke (lol! He’s old school), I have persuaded him that he can give all of us some fantastic long distance running and mountain skills tips this Wednesday evening in the live chat!

Joe is also a mountain leader and teaches navigation. He runs his own event safety, navigation course and events company NAV4 Adventure www.nav4.co.uk If you want to improve your navigation, Joe’s your man!
