Damian Hall is a record-breaking ultramarathon runner who’s represented Great Britain and achieved competitive results in some of the world’s toughest races, whilst also being a UK Athletics running coach, widely published journalist and author, public speaker, and parent.
Damian recently smashed the FKT record for the Pennine Way whilst picking up rubbish along the way, in line with his mission to become a more sustainable ultra runner and athlete.
We chatted about his training, the run itself, and his next challenge – the Ultra X World Championships – in the interview below.
