About the authors:

Dan is a Mountain Leader, Fell Leader in Running Fitness and INWA Nordic Walking Instructor. He has completed a number of 100-mile races and 24hr challenges including the Arc of Attrition and Lakeland 100 (both under 24hrs), the Spine Challenger, the Bob Graham and Paddy Buckley Rounds. Dan loves to run on all surfaces and all distances but the adventure of long distance mountain challenges really inspires him.

He loves to share this passion, and the skills needed to undertake these challenges, with others so they can have their own epic adventures.

Ronnie has been working with goals for nearly 20 years after studying for a BSc Hons Coaching, Sport & Exercise Science Degree. Originally a Personal Trainer working with a range of clientele, he began to see that similar mindset patterns clearly lead to an improved
success rate in achieving targets and individual fulfilment. Over time, Ronnie has become qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to better help individuals within this non-physical realm.

Over the last decade Ronnie has been working to help physically and mentally prepare hundreds of ultra runners from around the UK, tackling races from 30 miles up to 300 miles.

Ronnie personally loves to run long and he has successfully run across England (190 miles), Wales (250 miles) and Scotland (215 miles) in a non-stop format.
