Martin Bell

Martin took up running a few weeks after he turned 40 but has since become seriously addicted, completing multi distance races, now concentrating on longer distances.

He has thrown himself into running and has completed the 'Highland Fling', a 53 mile trail race in Scotland, the 'Great Glen Ultra', a 72 mile trail race, the 'CCC' (Courmayeur-Champex-Chamonix) a 101km trail race with 6,100m of ascent in the Alps, The South Downs Way, a 100 mile race between Winchester and Eastbourne and the Ring of Fire race which is a 135mile jaunt around Anglesey.

Martin also writes a blog full of running inspiration and when he's not running or writing he can be found managing the Ellis Brigham store in Aviemore and is more than happy to share with you some of his favourite routes around the Cairngorms. He is also involved with Glenmore Lodge Trail Running weekends thanks to his recent FLIRF (Fell/Trail Leadership In Running Fitness) qualification.
