It’s been quite a first 12 months in which he’s completed 4 parkruns with Martin Gooding, Tom Eastman- Troy, David Weighill and with Chris Lamb were he recorded a PB of 19.31.

He completely a 5k/ 10k double at Mud Sweat and Beers with Keiran Condon and Alex Schofield and most noticeably became a Suffering legend doing the 5k again with Alex, the 10k with Chris and the 10 miles with one of the event race directors Marcus all in one weekend!

As well as registering a sub 6 minute mile on the PJR mile time trial course he’s also donned fancy dress at the PJR Christmas relays, dressed in drag for another 5k/ 10k double at the Northampton Race for Life with the Dixey/ Rollins clan and took part in
Numourus training sessions.

His last appearance came at Parklands Tough Running Muddy Duck Virtual Race where he covered all 5 miles and even grow a body for the day!
