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 am also an ASICS STUDIO coach and online coach and mentor for Rushbynature.com. 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 career.

MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS

I have some big A races to look forward to in 2024. First up is a return to the Arc of Attrition in Jan but this time it's the 'baby' race - the 50 miler!! After this I may target a spring marathon, this will all depend on how I recover from the Arc. Then I plan to return to UTMB in the summer for another loop around Mont Blanc.
