As 2023 draws closer to its end, I thought it’d be a great time to work on a new list of goals for next year. One of my major goals is to continue to participate in running events for health reasons and, more importantly, to keep my life on a positive track through continuous improvement and the exercise of self-discipline and control. I have been successful in re-transforming my life for the better after putting on my shoes again and participating in trail and road running events in 2023, so I would like to continue that.

That said, here’s the list of running events that I would like to participate in in 2024.

Let me know if you are interested in joining me in any of these races.

2024 Running Events in Northern France and Europe

The list below also shows whether I’ve participated in the same race the previous year. If I did, the challenge for me would be to beat the performance I gave last year. *tbc = to be confirmed
