Ultramarathon runner Damian completed the 630-mile South West Coast Path in just 10 days and 15 hours in 2016, setting a new record that no one has come close to breaking yet.
Outdoor journalist, record-breaking ultramarathon runner and inov-8 athlete, Damian has represented Great Britain at the International Trail Running Championships, placed on the podium at the Spine Race, the Dragon's Back Race (5th OA), the UK Ultra Trail Championships, won the Ice Ultra in 2018 and took 5th place at UTMB 2018.
In 2016 he set a Fastest Known Time (FKT) on Britain's longest National Trail, completing the 630-mile South West Coast Path in 10 days and 15 hours, and this year he broke a 10-year-old record on the Paddy Buckley Round by completing the 100km-long route (which scales 47 summits in Snowdonia) in 17hrs 31mins. He is the subject of the highly acclaimed film Underdog by Summit Fever Media. At SWOF Damian will be speaking about his life on the hoof in a talk entitled: ‘A midlife crisis, a toilet and the power sob: what running long distances has taught me about life, the universe and everything’.
