Alasdair Meldrum


I am Alasdair, 48 and live in Ayr. I have been a runner off and on for most of my life but have recently taken it a bit more seriously and love competing across all events whether on the road, cross country, hill races or on rare occasions on the track!!

Ultra History

I did my first ultra in 2017 (River Ayr Way) and loved it and hated it in equal measure! Still an ultra novice with only two RAW and one WHW Fling under my belt, so 2019 will be a big year for me with a plan to complete the triple crown!

Why the WHW?

I crewed for Ian Young in 2018 and loved being part of the race, and knew I had to put my hat in the ring for 2019!

Aim for the race?

Really simple aim for me is to get to start line healthy and injury free and then finish!
