About

I love the mountains. I run trails, fells, mountains & roads; hike, climb badly & infrequently, mountain & road bike, stand up paddle board & take part in all manner of challenges. Provide me an element of physical suffering & i’ll probably give it a shot.

Some of the events I’ve taken part in and completed:

Pulled a 7.5 tonne lorry 6.2 miles with 5 other people

22 hour continuous abseil off a crane

Finished all 5 days of Hell of Hill Marathons

Clif Bar 10 Peaks Long Course – Lake District

Lakeland 50

Ennerdale Ultra

Snowdon Road Marathon

Glencoe Trail Marathon

3rd Male Dark Ox Night 10km

London Marathon

Red Bull Steeplechase

25th overall Trail Marathon Wales

Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace

 

My true passion is being creative and telling other people’s stories and this is the founding idea behind the website. Whether I can inspire through photography, my own experiences or those of others, the trails are home.

Over the past 9 years I’ve volunteered for the NSPCC, Help for Heroes, The Royal National Lifeboat Institution, guiderunning.uk, MyOutdoors.co.uk, Buxton Adventure Festival and Sheffield Adventure Film Festival.

Founder of Myoutdoors Running Twitter Page, under the watchful eye of Dave Mycroft and Running Editor of Myoutdoors for 2 years, I’ve travelled to races, developed my review style and become part of the UK trail running media.

I’ve had written work published by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, Trail Magazine, Anxiety UK, MyOutdoors and Lifesystems. Photos published by Trail Running Mag and Run Coed Y Brenin, commissioned by inov-8 at UTMB 2016.

Adventure and sharing experiences is at the heart of my philosophy.
