I've always considered myself a fun-runner. Although I've been running for as long as I can remember, I had a few years off before taking up running again with a local club at the age of 25.
The Sunderland Strollers introduced me to ultra-running, the Lakeland 50/100 were major events for the club and the ultimate goal for many. Over the last eight years I've progressed from being a new runner to an experienced ultra-runner; covering well over 30 ultra-marathon events & countless solo ultras too.
Some of my favorite ultra events have been: the Hardmoors 110, Lakeland 50 and 100 and also the Highland Fling. Being used to shift work & being on my feet all day in a high paced environment has contributed somewhat to my ultra training. I live for the weekends when we escape to the hills to run.
A few of my achievements to date: Various Hardmoors 10k and half podium places Hardmoors Super Slam winner 2018 Trail Outlaws Kielder Double winner 2017
