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
Snowdon Road Marathon
Glencoe Trail Marathon
3rd Male Dark Ox Night 10km
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.
