Scott’s ultra running adventures are a unique way for him to raise money for charities he’s passionate about, create memories and experiences with friends and family all whilst building a life CV.
Scott first got the “ultra running bug” after completing 75 marathons in 75 days from Boston to Austin 2000 miles in 2010.
He is also an ambassador for the Operation Smile charity and spent time on a charity mission to Mekele, Ethiopia to see and help first hand with the work that they do.
Over the course of the years the money he’s raised has helped achieve giving over 85 children the ability to smile for the 1st time.
Scott works full time in the corporate world for Johnson & Johnson so has also learnt a few things about balancing work with his passion for ultra running and adventure.
