Athlete's talk

Hi! Yes I do like running up, round and over mountains, but that’s not all I do in life Laughing. I’m British but live in the south of France with my wife and two (very energetic) kids, where we have lots of fun outside enjoying the Provencal climate, not to mention the olives, wine and bread!
I work in the development and construction of wind farm projects, many of which would make rather good locations for trail racing! My principal goal in life is to enjoy it and to avoid misery and pessimism!

 

 

2018 objectives
After a couple of years of trying my hand at some ultras and other formats of trail running, I’m now keen to get back into the world of skyrunning. So the focus will be on the Extra series and particularly the extreme skyrunning races where I hope to be able to skip across the knarly ridges somewhere near the front of the field.

Favorite race : RunLagnes / EnduroLagnes ! (check out www.runlagnes.com !)
Favorite trail : Right out of my front door and up the hill!
