Drew is one of our core stuff, yet so much of what he does is behind the scenes. Along with James and Jan, Drew does all of the event logistics management, pre-race packing and post race clean up. On race day he is everywhere, from setting up the start, to managing all of the course markings for each event. He is always the first to arrive and the last to leave a race weekend, when everyone is tucked up in bed after an event, it is he and James clearing bin juice out of the back of the rental trucks - glamour!!! No job is ever too big or too small for him. Drew has worked every race since the Thames Path 100 in 2012, event two in our history. His own running career is extensive twith well over 20 x 100 mile+ finishes from flat to truly mountainous, with 3 successful completions of Ronda Del Cims in Andorra. He's also amongst other things finished UTMB, Leadville, Ehunmilak, GUCR, Lakeland 100, Arc of Attrition, Istria, 100 miles Sud De France and the WHW Race . He is the ultimate fan of the sport and can often be found crewing, pacing or just spectating at events up and down the country and internationally. He brings a true runners head to our events, which is a huge part of what makes them friendly and safe. Not least, he also 'invented' the Chiltern Wonderland and Wendover Woods 50 courses - so many have to thank him for those too!
'Little Russ' joined us in 2015. A regular volunteer at almost every start line he gradually evolved into Staff as he took charge of kit check. Runners will still find him there at every race that he isn't running himself, along with setting up the race start and finish areas. Russ' running background is extensive, with finishes at the SDW50 and NDW50 amongst many other things, evolving into his first 100 mile buckle at the Autumn 100 in 2016. He has subsequently also gone on to finish the Grand Union Canal Race amongst many other things.
