Profile Tom Evans

It seems like there is an area of Tom Evans’ brain that may be missing- the part which tells him “it might be too tough or even impossible!”


Being a complete novice to Ultra Trail Running, he made the brave decision to change his life to try and become the best endurance athlete on the trails.

Not living in a typical Mountain environment like most of the dominant forces in the Trail running World, this required a completely different mindset and way of training.


Grounded in his family, British roots and the power of his Team, Tom Evans is striving for the biggest challenges and races in the sport.
