ABOUT ME

For some crazy reason, I am addicted to running up hills that make my thighs burn and I love the madness that is fell running. The majority of my races take place in the countryside on the beautiful hills and trails, and that's probably why I fell in love with the sport. Running was an addiction that came out of nowhere as I hit my late 20's and early 30's. Having never ran more than a few hundred yards without having to stop until late 2014, I spent the next 12 months competing in 15 races, ranging from 5km - marathon distance. During this period I also smashed through half a dozen obstacle course races (2 top 10 finishes) and spent 1 month running 10km per day up and down a High Street dressed as Buddy the Elf (I've done that twice now). Since then, the madness has escalated which has led me to ultra running. I finished 2017 with 3 ultra marathons and I'm tackling more distance in 2018!

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

3 ultra marathons in 4 months having never ran further than a marathon before.
2nd placed non-elite at Beetham Tower Staircase Race.
Appeared on Ninja Warrior UK as a banana. As you do.
