- Tell us a little about yourself...
Sheffield based runner – from parkrun to ultra distance. Works at the Accelerate Running Store in Sheffield and is a member of Team Accelerate.

- Where's your favourite outdoor spot in Sheffield?
Rivelin Valley – a perfect blend of wooded trails, pathways and scenic road sections, offering a gentle 3 mile ascent, or tough hill climbs on the surrounding slopes.

- What, for you, makes Sheffield the ideal "Outdoor City"?
We're the 4th largest UK City by population, due to the sprawl. Surprisingly green, offering the hills and crags of the Peak National Park, much of which falls within the City's border. For me, Sheffield is the jewel in the UK's outdoor crown.
