Mini CV
Started Ultra running in 2014. Progressed from Parkruns to Marathon then onto Ultras within a year.
My first 100 miler was Hardmoors 110, have since completed a couple more 100 milers. Overseas I was a finisher at UTMB in 2016, and finisher of Spartathlon in 2019. Have tried the 24 track event 3 times now - however none of these very successfully; It is a format I want to get a good result in.

Described as the world's most grueling race, the Spartathlon runs over rough tracks and muddy paths (often it rains during the race), crosses vineyards and olive groves, climbs steep hillsides and, most challenging of all, takes the runners on the 1,200 meter ascent and descent of Mount Parthenio in the dead of night.
This is the mountain, covered with rocks and bushes, on which it is said Pheidippides met the god Pan.

Spartathlon is the event that brings this deed to attention today by drawing a legend out of the depths of history. The idea for its creation is belongs to John Foden, a British RAF Wing Commander. As a lover of Greece and student of ancient Greek history, Foden stopped his reading of Herodotus' narration regarding Pheidippides, puzzled and wondering if a modern man could cover the distance from Athens to Sparta, i.e. 250 kms, within 36 hours.
