Originally from Gateshead in the North East of England. I have lived in Tywyn Wales for the last 24 years.
In my spare time I organise the Rotary Club of Tywyn annual Race the Train event.
Runners from across the Uk, Europe and around the world will descend upon the small Mid Wales town of Tywyn to race against the Talyllyn Railway.
Race the Train is a must do event for any multi-terrain runner, and we offer four races:-
The Quarry Challenge 10K.
The Dolgoch Challenge 5 mile.
The Tynllwenhen 3 mile Challenge. And of course
The Rotary Challenge 14 race.
The Rotary Challenge 14 mile race is ranked as one of the top ten challenges in the Uk. For further information visit our web site on www.racethetrain.xo.uk
I was born in Aberystwyth and brought up in West Wales. My parents live near Lampeter. So I know the area really well. Never done the man vs train, although ran the Welsh Castles relay as part of Bridgend's winning team one year.
