Merry Christmas everyone, here’s a little film compilation of all my ridiculous bloopers from 2019 to give you a giggle. And the cat of course makes an appearance too!

Thanks so much for watching Wild Ginger Running YouTube channel, you’ve been a fantastic audience and I have really enjoyed creating these films for you. I hope they have helped you improve or enjoy your trail and ultra running more this year. Have a really great time over the festive season, I hope you get a few nice trail runs in, and many mince pies to fuel you!

For 2020 I’m really excited about bringing you more tips and advice from top trail runners, with many interviews still to come from my trip to the UTMB in Chamonix, France and Skyline Scotland in the Highlands, UK. I also plan to do more gear testing and injury-prevention/strengthening workouts this coming year.

Massive thank you to all who have subscribed, shared my films on social media, and become my Patreons. And thank you to all the brands who have sponsored my trail and ultra running content.

It’s fantastic and exciting but also very hard work running a YouTube channel (there’s so much more to it than I ever imagined!) so I’m very grateful for your likes and kind comments below my films, and your support on Patreon. This means I can continue in 2020!

If you have any ideas for topics to cover, or questions about trail or ultra running then please do get in touch by writing a comment under the film, I’m always very happy to help.

Have a lovely Christmas and here’s to a great 2020 of trail running adventures!

Happy trails!
