About Us

Running and fitness have always been fundamental parts of my life. I completed my first marathon many years ago in 3 hours and 9 minutes and went on to record a fastest time of 2 hours 44 minutes. I have run hundreds of marathons, half marathons and shorter races since then and have also completed more than 70 ultra events (between 30 and 150 miles), with 14 of them being 100 miles or more.

I love sharing my knowledge and experiences with others so that they can share my passion for health and fitness. I’ve trained numerous clients to run both marathons and ultras, enabling them to achieve their own personal best times. I am also an active board member of the Trail Runners Association, working with many running organisations across the UK and developing and hosting ultra events.
