The Team

We want you to know who will be looking after you, when you race the Lakes Sky Ultra™

Race Director

Charlie is your RD. He is a very experienced mountain runner & has put his heart & soul into developing a mega Lakes Classic round.

You can feel completely happy & safe that he know's every path, junction, stream, ascent, descent, piece or rock and stone on the course. He has planned it very carefully & made sure that the LSU marshal team is the best it can be, come race .

Nicola looks after the organisation and admin, of which she is extremely skilled at. Come race day, Nicola endeavours to make sure that all the I's are dotted and all T's are crossed. 

If you have any enquiries, queries or questions, please do not hesitate to either email/call (email: Tel: Charlie 07989 697487 / Nicola 07976949488) them before the race day, or grab their arm & pull them to one side to get whatever bit of information, confidence or knowledge you might need to make sure you get the best out of your race day.

They will both be onsite from the start of the registration until the end of the after race party.

Our Team

Joe Faulkner is a seriously accomplished mountain athlete. Having completed the fabled Dragon's Back Race twice (once in 1992 & then 2012), his list of mountain challenges & races does not stop there, being far too many to list here.

Joe has worked as a safety officer on many mountain & adventure races, covering the KMF Trail Races last year for Charlie. We don't really think there isn't anything Joe doesn't know about the mountains of the UK or what happens in them. Running his own company NAV4Adventure, the original mountain trainers for navigation, mountain skills & now for the mountain running & adventure racing scene. Joe also runs his own race series & has RD'ed for many years, classics like the GL3D, Tour de Helvellyn & Lakes 42 are all Joe's conception.

Joe's roll on the Lakes Sky Ultra™ is chief safety officer.
