A FEW WORDS ABOUT US
Tape2Tape was formed in late 2011 out of a desire to put on quality races, which provide a safe and enjoyable race day experience.
As runners ourselves, we organise events from a runners perspective and look at all details from the minute the events are advertised right through to being back at home after your race. Our ethos is to provide everyone with a safe and enjoyable race day experience, which thus far we seem to have achieved!!
I am passionate about all forms of running and have ran in races of all distances since I started in the mid 1980’s. I have built up a wealth of experience over the years and would describe myself as a ‘steady club runner!’ I have been a member of a few clubs including Hatfield Polytechnic, White City(Hull), Scunthorpe and District, City of Hull, Wolds Veteran Runners Club and Caistor Running club.
I do not have many claims to fame, but I suppose having ran in every Great North run since 1992 is something I am quite proud of. My main passion nowadays is off road running, being out in the middle of nowhere in our beautiful countryside for me is what running is all about.
I started running in 2007 and absolutely love it. I prefer long distance and have a real passion for trail and fell running. It usually takes me 5 or 6 miles to get into my stride, which seems to help me on some of the long and mad off road ventures that I like to do. I completed my first road marathon in 2012, having the pleasure of running around the island of Jersey.
My real passion is off road running in the middle of nowhere with a map and sometimes waterproofs! I’m always looking for an off road challenge to test my endurance! The island of Menorca has to be one of my favourite places to run, it has a trail all the way around the island that greets you with many different terrains.
