John Parkin is your average 44-year-old primary school headteacher. He works from 9-5, has a loving family and enjoys cake a bit too much. In his ‘spare’ time John runs incredible distances through mountains while carrying a massive smile on his face and the necessities in a chest harness; known only as Arctic John.
We sat down with John and he took us through his very inspiring story with only a month between then and his next big race. From there we began following John on his path of preparation as he went out on reccies for the race and participated in educational fell running events with his wife.
In this time, we became very close with John and it is a pleasure that we can bring you the story of Arctic John as he prepares for a 55-mile ultra-fell run through the Cheviot hills in Northumberland.
