Tim started out as a mountain biker and only took up running to keep in shape. But from such a modest beginning he has really developed as a trail runner, completing TNF100 Australia in 2012 and collecting a bronze belt buckle for that effort. This year Tim is going back and is determined to get a silver buckle! Once Tim found his running feet, he took to ultra distance running almost immediately and within 12 months of taking up the sport, ran 35 miles along the Thames Path as a training run. At that point he had never run a marathon. Since then running has become a huge passion of Tim’s and he has set himself a number of targets in 2013 in addition to TNF100 Australia, including the UTMB CCC 100km race and the Royal Parks Ultra in London. And his ultimate ambition? The full UTMB race, so we’re sure he will enjoy the chance to see the course up close and personal on the Trail Team training camp.
