About Us

Trailing The Pack is here to share an experience. Think of TTP as a blog for race reports, training analysis, gear reviews and general running talk. Relaxed and personal we want to share our journeys toward Ultra Running Utopia. We may not be the best runners in the pack, hence the title, but we are passionate about our sport all the same. Its surprising what can be gleaned from people who have to work hard for what they've got.

 Meet the Team

We have a small group of writers, two to be precise who love trail running and simply want to share the experience.


Darren Smith
Fairly new to Trail running, Darren has high ambitions for 2018 and sees 2017 as a transitional year through the Hardmoors Wainstones marathon and White Horse half. Darren started "Trailing The Pack" to chronicle his journey and share the trip with any like minded nutters.


Matty McNamara
Struggling through injury Matty spent months developing his muscle balance and progressed his training to run some of the toughest Ultra's in Yorkshire. Hardmoor's 60 and 30 ticked off, Matty plans to run the Hardmoors 200 mile race in May.
