Since then running has become my main passion, with ultra trail running my main focus as it combines all the aspects I run for -of being outdoors in great places, adventure, self reliance and being a huge challenge... (especially when it’s not going well!)
My aim is to create the best events I can, on routes that are equally as challenging as they are scenic and fun, being chosen for their location in some of the most special places, but also others that are just good fun or a unique challenge! I enjoy putting a lot of thought and care into recceing and researching routes to use as I believe where you are is crucial to the overall experience of a race, as well as the care and detail given to the rest of the planning and logistics!
On race day it literally wouldn’t happen without a team of volunteers that share the passion for sport and the outdoors. People that are from various backgrounds of sport and industry with a wealth of personal experience and abilities to bring to our races. Lots of our volunteers have completed numerous marathons, Ironmans, triathlons, duathlons, utra marathons, adventure races, cycling events etc, as well as having careers in the forces, sports industries, logistics, care and hospitality for example. One of the main people on race day and company on recces is my wife Nicky, a highly experienced ultra runner, marathoner and triathlete, and who is also regularly a model for photos!
