Jonathan Wyatt

“I have been a ‘runner’ for about two thirds of my life where I have enjoyed all the disciplines including cross country, road, track, mountain running, trails, sky and even tower running! The results are something that I am proud of but the memories of the people and places i have met while running give me much more satisfaction than results. I love both the solitude that running brings as well as the camaraderie of racing and sharing the start line with many others who enjoy the same thing. My big passion now for almost 20 years has been off road running and being able to experience nature while using my own energy to move through it is something special.

I have met my wife while running, i have been able to share my running experiences with coaching other runners and I have also been able to work in the running industry where I am a part of the product and development team at La Sportiva based in the heart of the Italian Dolomites.“
