I am a GP in Settle in the Yorkshire Dales and am excited to have been asked to join the 2019 Original Everest Marathon Health team.
One can’t live in Settle and not go fell running. I run a lot around the local hills of the Dales and am a regular at 2-day mountain marathons and shorter trail races. I’m usually towards the back of the field but my speed of ‘slow and steady’ has always worked well when acclimatising!
I have climbed Aconcagua (6960m), Kilimanjaro (5895m) and trekked over 5000m in the Bolivian Andes and the Ladakh Himalayas.
I am also keen on ski touring, my favourite areas being Norway, Alaska and the Jura. I am looking forward to meeting all the runners and keen to help make the marathon an enjoyable, successful and safe experience.
