Discipline: Long Distance Fell/Ultra Runner Category: Senior
Blog: fellmonkey.com & Accelerate Buzz
Based in Sheffield and roaming the wilds of the Peak District, I am a fell and ultra distance runner.
I started fell running back around 2009, working out over time that the further I went the better at it I was. To this day my focus remains on the longer fell events which I try to fit in around the odd ultra race, a pursuit that in recent years has taken me across Europe in search of bigger mountains, dafter distances, and like-minded folks.
2016 was a mixed bag with a win at the Kielder Ultra and a DNF at the OCC in Chamonix. Now backed by Accelerate I’m looking to make 2017 a consistently strong chapter in my running story with a focus on getting back to some of the more localised, shorter fell races with one or two mountain based ultra adventures along the way.
