Damian Hall is a Runner, Coach and Journalist with a stunning CV, including podiums and top-10 positions at the Spine Race, the Dragon’s Back and the UTMB. He also holds a number of FKTs already including the 630 mile South West Coast Path.

On Friday 24th of July he grabbed himself another record in the shape of a Pennine Way FKT, a record which had stood for little more than a week after John Kelly’s incredible performance (see episode 42). Damian took an impressive 3hrs off John’s already exceptional time.

In this episode we talk through his preparation for the record attempt, his time out on the trail and the work he has put in to making sure that the challenge was carbon neutral.
