ABOUT ME

I am a dog loving ex GB road marathoner turned MUT runner (mountain, ultra, trail) with a passion for good food, good coffee and adventures. I can regularly be found running up and down the Kennet & Avon Canal with my running companion Mr Mole the German Wire Haired Pointer or munching on a pork pie post run. I've been lucky enough to travel the world with my running and meet such amazing people, representing my country at the European Championships and the Commonwealth Games was a particular highlight of my running career. Now I am part of the Global Frontrunner community I am looking forward to even more adventures with my team.
