ROWLANDS Carlton

It all started with triathlon as Carlton (AKA Crazy Cappuccino ) represented the UK in the long distance World Championships. He then took up residence in the alpine town of Chamonix Mont- Blanc, where the French mecca of all things extreme exposed his passion and abilities as a mountain runner. He took on the Ultra Trail World Tour becoming a sponsored athlete with Team Vibram and established a number of notable results on the world stage. He is passionate about moving fast, long and light in the most technical of terrain. As an Osteopath in elite sport he has a unique understanding of the human body and biomechanics; something of a secret weapon deepened further by his prior running research and current study of medicine. As Carlton studies to become a trauma surgeon in this new chapter the jagged mountains of Chamonix have given way to the rugged hills of the wild Peak District. Here he continues his endurance journey enjoying fell running and mountain marathons in preparation for the next project, a solid performance in the notorious Bob Graham round of the Lake District.
