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...

I once worked as a nanny in Switzerland

Who would be your 4 fantasy dinner guests (dead or alive)?

Bruce Springsteen, Stephen King, Ricky Gervais and JK Rowling
