Team TRB (The Disciples)


Very tall bloke

Very tall bloke, originally from Helensburgh, with ties to the North East and the North West of England (currently lives in Bamber Bridge (near Preston)). A long suffering Newcastle United (football), Rugby Union (Scotland) and Boxing fan – who started running races around 2012 to escape his regular sporting-related disappointments.

Running facts… Favourite distance: Marathon. Favourite Race (so far): A tie between Chicago and New York marathons. Brand of Trainer: Saucony (for road and trails). Worse experience in a run: Skitters before the Great North 10k and having to quickly wet wipe inside of shorts before start. Post-race I always…: Drink Brewdog and scotch whisky. Running hero: Zola Budd

A man who loves mountains

Chilled dude originally from near Blackburn, current lives in Sedburgh. A keen explorer, who has evolved in to basically running everywhere and all distances (a recent ultra-marathon convert…) – love hills, hills and more hills.

Running facts… Favourite distance: Anything hilly. Favourite Race (so far): Chiltern 50. Brand of Trainer: Several, depends on the terrain. Worse experience in a run: It was flat, on tarmac, I hated it… Post-race I always…: Support other finishers, chat to everyone and drink cider. Running hero: Killian Jornet
