About

Who am I and what is this blog all about?

I was born and brought up in the mining town of Ashington, Northumberland, England.  I worked as an Engineer and retired early from work in December 2009.

My love of the outdoors and the events I work on, allow me to see other parts of the British Isles, such as Cumbria, the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors along with Southern and the Highlands of Scotland.

Events?  Trail and Fell running events which include Mountain Marathons and Ultra events.  In addition, I have a passion for photography but I’ve not really ever been that good at it!  Composition, light etc. I found (and still do) difficult to work with.  However, I’m now determined to do something about that and I’ll be inflicting my efforts on those who visit my blog.

The blog will, hopefully, provide an insight into Trail/Fell Running events and Mountain Marathons from the perspective of the support team.  There are many elements that make up ‘the team’, I hope to bring at least one or two aspects to enlighten and entertain.

I hope you enjoy my writing and the places I visit as much as I do.  I only hope my words and photographs are of interest.
