Welcome to Doug Richards' Running Website

2018 was a great year for me! Apart from reaching a milestone 70th birthday in May, I also achieved a life-long ambition of running at least a half marathon on all seven continents when I completed the Antarctica half marathon in March. It was a trip I will never forget!

Further good news came later in the year when my second book ‘Can We Run With You, Grandfather?’ was published. Following the success of my first book, ‘Running Hot & Cold’, that won the Silver Award at the 2016 Running Awards in London, the publishers, Pitch Publishing, were eager for me to continue writing about my ongoing running adventures, and the new book includes full details of the amazing Antarctica experience. Both titles are available in paperback and ebook formats and can be found on Amazon and in all good bookstores.

2019 promises to be a great year as well, with further adventures planned on foreign soil and a great new charity to support. More details are on the ‘Latest News’ page.
