Hometown: Kendal

Sport: Running


Living on the edge of the Lake District, I grew up walking the fells with my parents. My dad had run for as long as I could remember, but it wasn’t until I was 17 that I decided to have a go! Now, there’s nothing I love more than a run on the fells!

Get to know...

Tell us about your successes so far?

Over the past few years, I have competed in the English and British Fell Running Championships, and managed to place 1st in the under 23 category! I have also been lucky enough to make the England mountain running team on a few occasions, which has been a great experience!

What are you working on? What are your goals for the future?

In the future, I want to continue to enjoy running and racing, and visit some more beautiful places!

Why do you run? What do you love about trail running?

Running has taken me to some beautiful places, and I have met so many fantastic, likeminded people over the years!

Which Scarpa shoe is your favourite?

Ribelle Run Trail Shoes! They feel so comfortable/cushioned when running on rough terrain, and very lightweight!

Tell us about your best day running?

My favourite day out on the fells was on my 21st birthday! Along with my friends from Helm Hill Runners, we ran 21 Wainwrights to celebrate. Starting and finishing at the Kirkstone Pass Inn, we made our way over High Street, Helvellyn, Fairfield (and a few more!), with a quick stop in Glenridding to meet my parents and grandparents for birthday cake and ‘Cumbrian Pasties’.

What do you do away from your sport?

I work as a Cardiac Physiologist, carrying out diagnostic tests, and treating patients with heart disease. When not running or working, I love to cycle, swim, canoe...anything that gets me out in the fresh air!

Where is your #NoPlacetooFar?

One day, I’d love to run and race all around the world! In particular, I’d love to visit the Himalayas.
