Foundation Member – Go Beyond Challenge
Go Beyond was founded in 2008 and I purchased the business in 2018. I am a former Infantry Soldier with a passion for Ultra Marathon running, and I’m literally living the dream.
After leaving military service I worked in various management roles and over 8 years as a health and sports club manager. My running started with 10K leading to the 100K London to Brighton as my ultra, and went on to complete some of the world’s toughest races, Marathon Des Sables, the Amazon Jungle Ultra and in 2017 became the first (and only to date) Englishman to complete the High Fives in the Great Himalayan Running Festival in the Himachal Pradesh in India crossing the second highest road pass in the world at 17500 feet.
Go Beyond Challenge exists to provide a platform for people to achieve dreams and goals, pushing themselves to new limits supported by people who have done the same, and allowing people to safely explore some beautiful routes.
Our core philosophies are based around making our events as accessible as possible and finding shorter distance options where practical and also not shying away from providing opportunities for disabled runners. We are proud to have looked after blind, deaf and wheelchair athletes in our races. Also we work with a large number of charity partners allowing them access to our event platform in order to raise much needed funds.
We are always looking at new and innovative ways to strengthen and grow our business.
