I am 35, I have a Wife and a baby boy who will have just turned one by the time the race comes about. We live in Balerno, just outside of Edinburgh. I’m a Research Scientist by day looking at Liver Cancer. 

Ultra History

I’ve completed eight ultra marathons since 2015.

Why the WHW?

In the past I would have said something about the challenge of it and how I had finally gained sufficient experience to take it on. Now, I might be slightly more philosophical and consider undertaking the race an expression of health and wellbeing. The challenge is not the course itself but how to reach the start line with the the ability to give an honest account of myself during the race.

Aim for the race?

Somewhere between 23 hours and completion.
