Hi Neil tell us, what do you for a living?
I manage the digital content for Blacks/Millets/Go Outdoors (and yes I do get discount)
How and why did you first get involved with RRC?
I moved to Rammy to live with my (now) wife 7 weeks after meeting her. Quickly realising I needed a “hobby” or she’d kick me out, I luckily saw a sign in a shop window saying “running club”. A week later I was there. So RRC directly saved my relationship.
What is your favourite running memory or moment?
Too many to choose from, but:
The Loch Ness Marathon 2018 trip
Crossing the line with Rowan in Amsterdam having had a “rough night”
Arriving at Healey Corner on the Rossendale Way in a Day attempt to find Brighda, Ann and John Hall had prepared a feast!
Tell us something about yourself that might surprise us...
