In this episode, we talk to the rising star of ultra races, Simon Roberts. This guy just keeps winning! Not least of all the recent Montane Dragon's Back Race, a mountainous 380km ultra run across Wales.
Daniel speaks to Simon about how a mindset change changed everything, some unorthodox self-motivation techniques, and his hopes for the forthcoming winter ultra, the Montane Cheviot Goat in Northumberland this weekend.
The Cheviot Goat is a 55 mile (11,500 feet of ascent) winter ultra run through Northumberland National Park. The Cheviots are a sprawling range of rolling hills straddling the Anglo-Scottish border with one of the lowest population densities anywhere in the UK, and is widely considered one of the last wild places in England.
