When did you join Daventry Road Runners?

I became a member of Daventry Road Runners in 2017.

Why did you start running?

A good mate of mine got me into running. I was 19 stone and said to my mate "I wish I could run like you". He told me I could and signed me up for a marathon – it was the best thing I ever did.

What is you biggest achievement(s) so far?

My biggest running achievements are completing the 53 mile Highland Fling Ultra Marathon up in Scotland and more recently getting my half marathon PB down to a time of 1 hour 29 minutes, with the help of Josh Schofield.

Why did you decide to join Daventry Road Runners?

I decided to join the club after chatting to some people at the Parkrun, and they recommended it to me. The support, motivation and inspiration from all the members is amazing.

What race would you love to do, that you haven't run yet?

I would love to do Marathon Des Sables, which is a 6 day, 156 mile Ultra Marathon held in Morocco in the Sahara desert.
