Recently married 36 year old paperboy from Falkirk now living in Stirling with wife Louise. Been running since around 2005 after failing at an attempted career in amateur football. Started off at marathon distance before working my way back down to normal starting distances like 5 & 10k’s. Fallen out of love with road races which had me looking for a new challenge which ultra races have provided.
Started off at GlenOgle to test the water in 2013 (also run in 2014&16) before doing the Fling in 2014&16 along with the West Highland Way, Devil and Glenmore24 in 2016. Had 2017 off but looking forward to my return in 2018.
Why the WHW?
I’ve walked the route twice and bumped into runners training for the race and it pretty much had me hooked from there. Also completing the race in 2016 and falling short of the time i was looking for has had me eager to return to try again!
Aim for the race?
To go faster than in 2016 and know i’ve left nothing out on the course.
