I’ve been worked hard on my running since 2013 when I joined Clowne Road Runners, after overcoming Perthes Disease as a child. I have gone on to complete Marathons & Ultra Distance Marathons and become totally running obsessed.
5k – 16:16
10k – 33:24
10mi – 55:46
1/2 Marathon – 73:34
Marathon – 2:42:27
In 2014 I ran my first marathon in a time of 2:42:27 at the Edinburgh Marathon, which was more than I thought would be possible on my first attempt. It also had a additional bonus of qualifying for a automatic championship place for the London Marathon.
My biggest achievement has come in the world of ultra running, completing The Ultra Tour Of The Lake District and raising over £3000 for Cancer Research UK. This race is considered to be one of the hardest in the UK and generally ensure a 50-60% failure rate over the 100 mile course. My finisher’s medal is possibly one of my most treasured possessions.
I have also completed The Fellsman which is a high level traverse covering more than 60 miles over very hard rugged moorland. The event climbs over 11,000 feet in its path from Ingleton to Threshfield in the Yorkshire Dales. Which I finished in a time of 12hrs 36min.
