Richard

I'm a Northern Masters athlete. Known as the “Mohican Runner” due to my hairstyle. I started running in 2012 & in 5 years I've gone from 20st to a sub 5 minute mile runner. Along the way I've helped to raise over £1.3 million for the NSPCC. I'm a designer at LEGO and love coffee. I'm sponsored by Sockmine, I am also a ambassador for Awesome Virtual Running and Naked Runner.
