Jonathan Kettle

Always been very active in many outdoor activities but mainly in road cycling and running. Since
2010 running has become my main activity and have competed in many marathons as well as ultra marathons all over the uk and a few marathons in Europe. Comes from a background of sports management involving coaching and training different abilities of cyclists
and runners. There is one thing I love more than running itself and that is seeing people achieve their own personal goals.

Haydn Baker

Haydn has been running seriously since 2009 when he made some life changing choices turning his back on a less than healthy lifestyle. Since then he has participated in dozens of marathons and ultra-marathons across the UK and abroad with a preference for mountainous, rugged trails. Haydn has also been involved in volunteer duties on numerous races and will be a familiar face to many of you here. He is also part of the admin team behind the flourishing Facebook running group,
the infamous Dirty Daps, Muddy Tracks which has gone from strength to strength. Today his main motivation is the deep contact with nature that comes from ultra-trail running and also the human aspect of the sport, meeting so many great people along the way. He also loves the logistics side of it all, happiest buried in his beloved maps plotting routes, checking details. His motto in life is ‘Learn, share, grow’.
