I've run for 21 years. I've been a member of three UK running clubs and compete at a county and national level for my current club Ilford ac. I love all distances and conditions from fell races to track running to race walking. I've completed 53 marathons (highlights include: pb in Chicago 2018 at 3h 03 mins, I've run five of the six marathon majors, I've run marathons on four of the seven continents around the world, I've raced numerous mountain marathons like Jungfrau and Snowdon and finally I've run the most northerly marathon in the arctic circle in Norway ). I've done several 50km plus ultra-marathons and endurance races including running the length of Hadrian's wall in Cumbria and an adventure race in Scotland of 110 miles from east coast to west coast via bike, kayak and running. Next year I'm planning to run the 500 mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain. Triathlons and aquathons are also my passion for over 12 years. In 2019 I represented Great Britain in the European (finished 5th) and World (finished 17th) Aquathlon age group Championships in Romania and Spain. I’ve also completed a long-distance triathlon called the Isklar Norseman, the world's toughest ironman and very cold in the fjord! I've finished a team relay ironman and an individual 70.3 middle distance event.
Sport has also helped me to help others. I am a UKA registered guide runner for the visually impaired and a volunteer Search and Rescue Technician for the charity, Lowland Rescue. I am on call 24 hours a day to search for missing people in lowland wooded areas and water around London and the British Isle.
