Passionate About Running

54 North Running was born out of a pure passion for running in the mountains. Leaving a stable and well paid career behind I moved to the Lake District (54 degrees North) in the winter of 2018 to immerse myself in the sport, spending all of my free time running the Fells, exploring, and bettering myself in any way possible. Through running I have found peace, happiness, confidence, motivation, competition and a profound connection with myself and with nature. Competing regularly in local Fell races and mountain ultras I love to push myself to my absolute limit, achieving some top finishes along the way.
