Javed is a keen outdoorsman with a background in caving, climbing, mountaineering, nordic skiing, triathlon ….. well pretty much anything that involves being outside with friends. He completed his first marathon more than 35 years ago and then discovered ultra running in 2007. He is now a fell and mountain running coach, Chair of Governors at a very special school, an organisation development consultant …… and has a special interest in personal and organisational resilience.
He likes to practice what he preaches so is currently on a mission to double some of the most challenging events, and in so doing explore and develop strategies to help others ‘learn and grow.’
He recently became the first to run a double Thames Ring (500 miles), the first Brit to complete the Fidippides Race (double Spartathlon at 306 miles) and the only ever person (as far as we know) to complete a double winter Pennine Way.
