I am a former Welsh fell running international, competed in a number of World cup mountain running championships at junior and senior level. Competed for Wales in a number of home nation mountain running competitions. Represented North Wales in inter-country fell and cross country championships.
During my time in the Royal Air Force I competed for the Combined Services & Royal Air Force in athletics, road running and cross country in the UK and Europe.
I have won numerous fell and road races all over the UK and some in the Middle East and Falkland islands.
I started my running as a youngster, running over the mountains in Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales. I would always remind myself when I was training that the hard work would pay off and I always had to work harder than my competitors. Running gives you a sense of achievement and freedom, the key is to enjoy what you’re doing.
I have been privileged to have been coached by two excellent coaches in my time – one of them went on to become an England Junior coach. Both coaches have coached a number of athletes to international level.
