Emma Humphries – Trail and Ultra Runner

Emma HumphriesEmma spent most of her youth and first part of her adult life working with racehorses and competing event horses. Early starts and long hard days in all weathers gave her a love for the great outdoors, but although always fit, it wasn’t until a change in career brought her relatively late to running.
 
Rapidly progressing through the distances Emma shone in the longer, tougher events winning many trail marathons before progressing to ultras with several successful finishes including most recently 2nd lady in the Hardmoors 110.
 
“I enjoy running most days with my dog (Crumble), but particularly in the hills of the Peaks or the Lakes. Its pretty flat in Lincolnshire where I live so I have to go in search of decent hills!”
 
My husband Tom is also a keen runner who also competes in Ultras and completed the BGR last year. Our two boys also love to run and have also had a few successful results!”
 
“Before I discovered ‘Mountain Fuel’, eating and staying fuelled on a race or long run had been my biggest weakness. Now I have the confidence to get through a race knowing that I am properly fuelled. I use all the ‘Mountain Fuel’ products and particularly like the ‘Morning Fuel’ and ‘Chocolate Recovery Fuel”.
