ABOUT ME

I'm a trail and ultrarunner, and qualified endurance running coach based in London. I've run a dozen marathons, and more than a dozen ultramarathons, including six 100 mile races and a 200 miler. I'm a Co-Founder and Trustee of Black Trail Runners, a community and campaigning charity that works to increase the participation, inclusion and representation of Black people in trail running.

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

The running achievement which has given me greatest satisfaction is coming back from knee surgery and a nine-month injury lay-off to complete the Centurion Running 50 Mile Grand Slam in 2019. It exemplified the attitude towards running and life I try to maintain. Trusting the process, perseverance, challenging goals and shared experience. I am living, running proof that it is possible to return from injury stronger and more capable than ever.

MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS

My first goal for 2024 is to run 100 miles in under 24 hours. I'll be toeing the line at the Centurion Running Thames Path 100, hoping to duck under 24 hours for the first time in four attempts.
