Martin started running 9 years ago. Since then he has completed various Ultra Marathons some of which include the CCC 100km from Courmayeur to Chamonix, The Wall 70 miles from Carlisle to Gateshead and The Great Glen 72 miles Fort William to Inverness.
He has tested out equipment such as inov-8 and Salomon, giving them feedback. Many years’ experience selling running gear to customers and listening to what they want from a product which is then fed back to the companies themselves. He has attended running workshops from top athletes to improve his knowledge. And has also experienced a long term injury so can relate well to most runners!
A moment that stands out for Martin would be getting to the top of the last hill on the CCC the ‘Tete aux Vents’ after a really low period on the climb, to witness the sunrise and get a new lease of life all the way to the finish!
Next June Martin will be running the South Downs Way 100 (miles) and at the Beginning of September he will hopefully be running the ‘Ring of Fire’ 135 miles around Anglesey. During the rest of the year they’ll be a few Munros and Corbetts getting ticked off to keep him busy.
Chamonix. "Most of the time I’m in Scotland enjoying the trails and hills but I always love running anywhere new, Chamonix will always be a favourite though."
