David grew up as a hash house harrier, but rediscovered running in his late twenties, in an effort to stave off moobs. Starting with marathons David expanded into adventure racing with Accenture Adventure Race Team and then obstacle racing, forming Inov-8 OCR the best team in Europe for several years with friends Jon Albon, Ross Macdonald and Clare Miller.
In 2016 he stepped up to ultras and has since been mixing up all distances and disciplines. Whether representing England in the Beer Mile World Championships or winning a marathon in Somaliland David is attracted to challenges that are epic, breathtaking or so stupid that he has to give them a try.
