Paul Larkins brings decades of experience to the World Mountain Running Association.
From the prime of his own running career in the late 1980s to his current work as a journalist, Paul has been involved in almost every aspect of running.
As an athlete he excelled in middle distance, breaking 4 minutes for the mile and representing both England and Great Britain at World and European level on the track and the road. He has remained heavily involved in the sport since his competitive career, managing and coaching athletes for England Athletics alongside his work in the media.
