I am a retired Royal Air Force Training Officer who had the pleasure of representing the RAF at Tennis, Badminton and Triathlon. When I worked in industry I found it easier to train for distance running events and completed 8 marathons including London Marathon 6 times and Windermere once (which is my absolute favourite).
I retired to spend more time as a local Councillor for Windermere and Bowness but was then persuaded to become a Trustee for Waterbird. Knowing the wonderful work that Brathay do, I then came to work for Scott Umpleby within his events team and help deliver my favourite marathon, Windermere.
My favourite event to work on is the Langdale Marathon and Half. It’s such a beautiful place and a stunning time of year (despite the rain). I also get to see runner pass by twice and cheer them on!
