I’m a runner from Glossop in the Peak District.  I love nothing better than to be in the high peaks in and around the hills around Glossop. My main passion is distance and hills, technical trail and open moorland. From running 5k around a park in Manchester I gradually increased my mileage until I found the challenge of running further and further gripped me and now the challenge of pushing my body to its limits has become integral to my life as runner. As of December 2015 I’ve done 7 ultra marathons ranging from 30 to 60 miles and my training ranges from 30 to 50 miles per week depending on life factors.
