LONDON , United Kingdom
daznbone are London based ultra-marathon runners and coaches Darren Strachan and David Bone
We've competed in a diverse set of events, from classic big city marathons to niche ultras such as Centurion’s SDW 100, KACR 145 mile, 24 hr races at (World Champs) Belfast & Tooting and the legendary Spartathlon three times.
Most of all though, we love the shared experiences our running has brought to us.
daznbone are David Bone and Darren Strachan. We have been running ultra-marathons ourselves for over 10 years. Initially we started off with ultras as glorious fund-raisers. We ran with lifelong friends Jamie Holmes and James Ellis from Brighton to London (100km) through to the Anglo Celtic Plate champs (100km - Sub 10 hour) our first 100 miler at Cotswold Way (6th place) until we reached the 24 hour mark (finishing as a team of four in 1st place in the Ashburnham 24hr Champs). This gave us our first Spartathlon ballot qualifier and the rest is history https://daznboneultra.com/spartathlon
Through the completion of Spartathlon in 2017 our journey began when other runners started to contact us about specifically helping them begin (or finish) the Spartathlon dream. We love the distance (153 miles) and we love the journey (qualification) and everything that comes along with this adventure.
Whilst we have this focus on Spartathlon it fair to say that the same skills and training can apply to all levels of ultramarathon.
Along with racing and coaching we host a summer Runcamp in Bulgaria with elite ultra athlete Nathan Flear http://runbulgaria.com/product/spartathlon-training-camp-2020/ and we continue to promote our own free community events - especially Night Runs/FKTs and charity runs - You can find more about us via our website and Strava accounts
