Mark Timmons is a 62 year old retired high school teacher from Brandon, MB. He started his running journey at age 50, when most people start thinking about retirement. He started with short “fitness” runs, gradually building up his distance to 10k, half marathons and then full marathons. After running the Boston Marathon in 2012, Mark discovered trail running and soon found himself completely immersed in trail running culture. His passion for trails and mountain running has taken him all over North America, Nepal, Iceland and Norway. It was an experience he had while running the Mount Everest Extreme Ultra in Nepal that inspired him to start writing, eventually resulting in the publication of his book, Man on the Run. The book is a collection of stories journaling the experiences Mark has had during an unforgettable decade in pursuit of the extraordinary.
