What is your favourite race?

Exe to Axe is everything you could want from a low key fell race with great views along the way. I really enjoy the Dartmoor Discovery, it always has a good atmosphere and a good buffet to finish!

What’s on your bucket list?
UTMB, Comrades and to run from John o’ Groats to Lands End.

Who inspires you to run?
Dean Karnazes’s first book really spoke to me, I’ve always wanted to see how far I can run, and he did just that.

There is a strong trail running community where I live in Exeter & there’s a group of guys that always inspire me to run well, and far!

What has been your most memorable race to date?

Running the Plague in 2015, having many ups and downs, but always moving forwards. I couldn’t have done it without the marshals, the other runners and the mudcrew organisation !

And your best race results to date?

2014 : 2nd Dartmoor Discovery; 1st Black RAT 32 miles; 2nd Endurancelife CTS Dorset 45 miles

2015 : London Marathon 2h45m; 3rd Plague, sub 13 hours
