Who’s behind End to End?

We are husband and wife team Nathan and Tori. End to End was never meant to become a business, it all happened by accident. We organise an ultra marathon race each year in Wales and unfortunately like most race organisers had to cancel it due to the Coronoavirus pandemic, after cancelling we decided to put a virtual event together which we could offer to our entrants to perhaps help keep them motivated during lockdown, quite a few race organisers were offering virtual options so we wanted to be a little different, we decided we’d offer a 6 month challenge to cover the distance of the length of Britain, Land’s End to John O Groats, LEJOG.
The rest, as they say, is history, we were soon asked to launch more events and our 3rd LEJOG received over 2000 entries during one weekend whislt we were away camping with our 3 children, we came home and couldn’t believe it! Anyway, the amount of entries was more than we could cope with, our system crashed, emails came flooding in and all of a sudden we had to make the decision of taking on software developers, and a couple of admin staff to help us. End to End could no longer be our kitchen table project.
Even with the number of entries received so far we are still only a small team, we’d like to keep it that way, a small family that each and every person that enters our events becomes part of.
Our reason for setting up the challenges was to keep runners motivated and this has not changed and never will!

TORI

SHE IS NOT A RUNNER, SHE USED TO RUN BUT HER LEGS HURT TOO MUCH SO NOW SHE JUST HIKES AND DOES YOGA (WHEN SHE CAN FIND THE TIME, MOSTLY SO SHE CAN EAT!)

Tori

She has been the backbone of End to End since it began and when it all took off found herself working 20 hour days sat at the kitchen table so you can enjoy your challenges- she really cares about every person who takes on the challenges and will go above and beyond to make sure everyone is enjoying. Tori is the person who designed all your lovely postcards and awards you receive, Your medals and T-shirts and personally replies to all thank you emails even if it does take her a few days to get to it. :-)

NATHAN

HE IS THE RUNNER IN THE FAMILY

Nathan

He represents Wales at the 100k ultra distance and was this year selected for the Great Britain 24 hour team for the European championships. He is a professional run coach with athletes all over the world. It’s safe to say that running is Nathans passion!

SKYE, SUMMER AND JACKSON

OUR 3 CHILDREN, THEY PICK OUR SPOT PRIZES, SO IF YOU'RE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE PULLED OUT OF THE HAT IT'S USUALLY ONE OF THESE 3 THAT HAS CHOSEN YOU

Skye, Summer and Jackson

We home school our kids so they are with us 24/7 and therefor we try to include them as much as possible in everything that we do. Skye, our eldest, helps add your names to our maps :-)

ANN AND STUART

NATHANS MUM AND STEP DAD... THIS REALLY IS A FAMILY BUSINESS

Ann and Stuart

We managed to rope Nathans parents into helping us pack and send out your t-shirts and medals. A job we never expected to become so time consuming, Ann and Stuart kindly offered to keep all medals and T-shirts at their home until over 8000 people signed up then we realised we needed a bigger space and they needed more rooms to move around their house!

VALERIE

OUR MUCH LOVED ADMIN MANAGER WHO TORI LIKES TO REFER TO AS ''HER SAVIOUR''

Valerie

She is the person you will most likely receive a reply to your emails from and is there to help with anything you need help with. She’s usually the one who keeps Tori organised when she can’t remember what day it is!

MILO

IS OUR ONLINE MANAGER

Milo

he keeps an eye on the amazing community on our social media that has formed through the End to end challenges. He is the one who updates all your lovely images onto the website and keeps everyone motivated and positive.

SEAN AND SAURAV

OUR DEVELOPERS. THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST!

Sean and Saurav

they work like clockwork to make sure the system works as it should so you have the best challenge you can possible have. Sean is a trail runner and Saurav is a hiker, together they are the tech team who work behind the scenes making adjustments and improvements (some you see, some you don’t)

CARL WALSH

NOT AN OFFICIAL PART OF OUR TEAM BUT JUST AS IMPORTANT - THE BIB MAN HIMSELF!

Carl Walsh

When it all took off our good friend Carl Walsh kindly volunteered his time to help people with their bibs and numbers and anything else they needed help with. Carl has been our number 1 from the beginning and if not for him Tori would have most likely ended up in a straight jacket! Carl volunteers his time to help as there is nothing more than Carl enjoys more than running and helping people. Tori’s favourite saying now is “If the world was made of Carl’s it would be a better place… #bemorecarl”
