Nomad

‘a person who does not stay long in the same place; a wanderer.’

Hello and thanks for visiting our blog!

We are The Running Nomads, Nathan and Libbi. We are a couple who love all things outdoors, especially running and especially running up hills. Originally from Manchester, we love escaping to explore and hike in Scotland, The Lake District and have a special affinity for The Peak District.

Our adventures started with a modest beginning, but by saying yes repeatedly for things (that we had no business saying yes to), we have found ourselves in incredible places and had the pleasure of meeting some incredible people. We’ve ran the UK three peaks, spent time hiking and wild camping in the Pyrenees, crewed for a team of cyclists racing 3000 miles across America and half of us have completed a SkyRace in Bulgaria, but more on all these later. We also have a Border Terrier called Arthur, who will feature heavily in any photographs or blog posts beyond 2019.

The idea for creating this space grew as we are often asked for hints & tips and wanted to share the love and give fellow novices the courage to lace up their boots and go explore in the wild. Whether it be our footwear recommendations for trail running, recent race reviews, our van conversion or our favourite places to wild camp in Scotland, everything we share will be based on our personal experiences and we hope we inspire you - say hello & join the adventure!
