Welcome to Doug Richards' Running Website

Well, 2019 has been an amazing year of running adventures so far and there is still more to come, even into the first month of the New Year. In early June, I ran a half marathon on the remote Easter Island in the South Pacific – a fantastic sporting, cultural and sightseeing experience on an island renowned for its mysterious Moai statues. In September, my next island visit took me to Sao Miguel in the Azores for 4 very different races. The scenery was absolutely spectacular, including a 17k run on a forest trail and one of the most challenging half marathons I have ever run, climbing to the rim of a volcano, running around it before descending into the crater, which was so vast it held 2 lakes and a small town! And then October saw me run, and complete, my first full marathon for over 7 years, finishing in the beautiful city of Venice. See the ‘Latest News’ page for what is coming next!
