Hi, I'm Ben, a friend of CTO Phil and co-contributor to the website. I've had a passion for mountains since an early age, having spent summer holidays in Haute-Savoie as well as hiking in the Lake District. I realised a dream of relocating with my family to Chamonix in early 2021. Although I've always been an active sportsperson, I only took up trail running seriously after moving to Chamonix. I'm now on a mission to explore as much of this beautiful region as possible, as well as experience as many of the epic crazy trail races as my ageing body will allow!
