Fastest At World’s End / Sidetracked

[:en]For as long as I’ve been writing about adventures, I have wanted to have my work published at Sidetracked. If you don’t know already, it’s a beautiful online selection box of far-flung journeys, unexpected encounters and daring deeds – sharply penned with startling photography.

Sidetracked Pull QuoteThe editor-in-chief John Summerton doesn’t just pick up any pitch, but on my 3rd attempt in September 2015, with a promised story about our attempt to run the Fastest Known Time around the 100km “O” trek at Torres del Paine – it looked like I might have a story. The hardest part was initially getting the photography up to standard (which took two separate trips to Chilean Patagonia,) and then the envisaged angle about macho endeavor in an inhospitable land just didn’t want to go down on the page like that. (The run itself was much easier.)

Eventually it did come together (thanks for your patience and giving me a shot in the first instance John) and you can now read “Fastest At The World’s End” online.

(The run itself – although we never got near to that allusive fastest time – went much smoother than the article!)

Eventually it did come together, thanks to the incredible patience of my very talented running partner and friend James Donald, and also to John Summerton for giving me a shot in the first place. You can now read “Fastest At World’s End” online.
