November 2021 (tbc)

Running & writing weekend, Dartmoor

Originally scheduled for November 2020, this popular weekend retreat/workshop for runners interested in writing and writers interested in running has been provisionally postponed to November 2021 on account of coronavirus. Part of Adharanand Finn’s Way of the Runner series of retreats, it is co-hosted by Adharanand (author of Running With the Kenyans, Rise of the Ultra Runners, etc) and me. Precise date to be confirmed, but you can find out more here.

Thanks to Write This Run for the picture at the top, from their Monoblogues event at The Drayton Arms Theatre in August 2014.
