In Tom’s earlier years he was a keen sportsman involved in racket sports and football, his passion for running was sparked whilst at Bristol Uni. In 2008 he was taken on as a Salomon Adventure Racer. Talent spotted by one of the team managers Tim Lloyd (now Director of Always Aim High Events) after some good fell race results and a couple of folk had suggested Tom.
Now a Glaswegian, who runs with his local club the Shettleston Harriers, Tom is a demon for the hills and mountain races at all distances Ultra’s, Sky Running, Fell Races…..
