Biography:

I have been running since I was 16 as a track and road runner and recently found the love for fells and trails.
 
During my running career I have gone from running 400 hurdles all the way up to 50k ultras, and still looking for my favourite distance. Since joining up with Stuart and Accelerate, I have found that trail running is becoming my preferred terrain.
 
Since having surgery on an ankle injury, the past couple of seasons have been a gradual build up back to full fitness.
 
If I'm running I'm smiling.
