Beth Pascall - The Ultra Distance Racing Expert
Beth started out as a runner. Then, over the following 20 years she dedicated a lot of time to a plethora of other sports. Then in 2013 she returned to running. Knowing little about ultrarunning, she was initially inspired by books, but later by the people she met and the places it has taken her. She love the simplicity of running, the feeling of being connected to nature and the way of life it encourages me to have.
She is based on the edge of the beautiful Peak District in England. When not out running in the hills she works as junior doctor specialising in paediatrics.
Beth has a massive amount of knowledge to share with the weekend.
Damian Hall - The Ultra Distance Training Expert.
Outdoor journalist and GB ultra-trail runner Damian Hall has finished on the podium at the Spine Race, Dragon’s Back Race (fifth overall), Lakes Sky Ultra in 2016 (finishing 6th) and the 2016 UK Ultra Trail Championships. In May 2016 the Inov-8 ambassador set a Fastest Known Time for the 630-mile South West Coast Path of 10 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. He’s run a Bob Graham Round with Charlie from Mountain Run (in 21:57) and a Charlie Ramsay Round this year with him as well, the pair finished in 23:11 after a perfect on-sight attempt, he used both rounds as training for UTMB, the world’s most competitive 100 miler, where he placed 19th in 2016 and now 12th (and 1st UK Male) in 2017. What Damian doesn't now know about ultra-trail running isn't worth knowing really! He seems to be quite good....
