Hi. I’m Jack and I’m a father, teacher and runner from the land of concrete cows and roundabouts – Milton Keynes.
My running journey began in Sept 2018 when I signed up for a beginners couch to 5km group with my local running club. My goal was simple… to enjoy running for the first time in my life. Within 3 weeks of starting I signed up for a marathon. I suppose you might say mission accomplished. The following year in Sept 2019, I successfully completed a very soggy Berlin Marathon.
To me, running is all about community. I can usually be found bumbling around Instagram (@thischapruns) or running races up and down the country. I love the camaraderie at events and sharing in the success of others in the community. I suppose that’s why I loved the National Running Show so much. A place where likeminded running enthusiasts could get together and meet fellow runners.
