AKA: Spenny


As an electrician living in East London it's pretty hard to be out running on hilly trails and coastal paths during the week so have to focus on local running and the closest thing to this as I can which is often canal paths, nature reserves and park loops, don't get me wrong it could be worse but I really look forward to heading out for a weekend adventure or maverick race weekend to get that healthy dose of outdoors offering a great escape and can take you to some amazing places. I truly LOVE being in the mountains, setting off in the morning for an all-day adventure is me at my happiest for sure.

One Trail Running Tip- base your runs on time and effort. Not distance and pace.

Favourite Maverick Race- It's a tough choice as having enjoyed so many courses and had a pretty firm spot in my heart for the Exmoor trails for their location and how surprisingly technical they were! But gonna go for The Dorset race. I love that part of the world and am always really excited to be heading there, will always make a weekend of it there too. Can't beat those coastal trails.

2020 Goal- I have a winter/Spring itch to scratch every year with a road marathon goal and am hoping to run the Boston Marathon in 2020! Then crossing my fingers firmly for a spot on the UTMB start line again as the training turns to mountain running hoping the ballot goes in my favour this year for the big 100-mile mont blanc circumnavigation race.

Years as part of the MTD- I think this is my 4th year with the MTD!

Favourite Trail running snack- bananas always! oh and Medjool dates
