Ultra Awesome allows you: 

  • Facebook fun! Access to the wondrous facebook group where you can find the community that we are building together - a place to support, encourage and share advice, hopes dreams and thoughts on the latest episode of SAS Who Dares Wins. 
  • Newsletter nonsense! The monthly newsletter includes updates on what I'm up to, what I think you could and should get up to, discounts and special offers from race companies, book updates and pretty inspiring stories from members who are doing amazing things. 
  • Book benefits! Finally, this tier means you will get a massive big printed THAAAANKS in the book when it's done. Your support is the only way I will find the time to write it. 
  • Access all areas! This tier allows you access to little old me. You can contact me whenever you want for help and advice on everything from mental planning for big old races to what sort of food won't get squashed on a 100 mile race. I can also point you in the direction of qualified running coaches, mindset coaches mountain leaders, expedition leaders and race organisations that I think would suit you, depending on what you're after. I can offer you advice, encouragement and support based on my experience. 
  • Bailey bants! Joining this tier also means you can arrange a call or Skype once a month with me for up to an hour to chat through 'stuff'. You don't have to. But I'm here if you need a kick up the arse or a nice virtual hug.  I gots ya, boo. 
  • Skeleton Squad rewards! The first 50 members of the Ultra Awesome tier will, in my head anyway, be known as the skeleton squad - the foundation that I built this whole thing on. That means you are very special to me. You have believed in me, I will believe in you. It means that you are first in line for exclusive offers such as first dibsTest Pilot Trips, gear to test and, when the time comes, other awesome stuff. I may even send you presents in the post. Exciting innit?

About Ultra Awesome

Welcome Friend!

Whether you have come from the website or the Facebook group, thanks for coming over to see what all this nonsense is about. If you have no idea where you are or why you are here, you can read about what I do here.

Failing that, I've done a pretty good cut/paste/edit job for you below. Have a read! 

The aim is pretty simple. I want to be able to talk to, help and inspire as many people as possible on a pretty personal level, I just don't have the time to help everyone! By subscribing to Ultra Awesome you are allowing me to take time to look at you and your circumstances and help you decide what you want to do and how you want to do it. Heres a very long explanation of what to expect. 

_______________________________________________________________________

So many people in this big wide world want to do something epic, but as the saying goes...

YOU CAN'T DO EPIC SHIT WITH BASIC PEOPLE 

Ultrarunning, adventuring or exploring the world can change your life. These challenges spike our curiosity, push our boundaries and makes us resilient. They fill us with wonder, excitement and purpose. They make us stronger, both mentally and physically. Most importantly, they give us the opportunity to be us - the real us - away from the strains and pressures put upon us by modern society. Challenge enables us to live a life less ordinary. The best bit? All of this stuff is fully accessible to anyone. The only person standing in your way is you.

I’ve started Ultra Awesome because of you. The person sitting here, reading this. I’ve started it because there is a huge untapped pool of amazing endurance runners and adventurers out there and there is an amazing world waiting for you. Every single person has extraordinary in them, you included. Ultra Awesome will help you find it, harness it and use it. 

First and foremost, I want to create a community of doers.That is a word. It means people that do stuff. I want to use my experience to show you that you CAN live a life less ordinary and it DOESN’T mean you have to do 78 classes a week, stop drinking, wear tie dye and get a divorce. It’s about having access to people, stories and projects that will open your eyes to what is achievable.  It doesn’t involve mindset courses, silent retreats or SAS style training. It involves normal people collaborating to support and inspire each other. It involves bravery and thought. It involves kindness and patience. It involves sharing knowledge and advice and encouraging people to achieve more than they ever though possible. 

Have a read of this. Is this you? 

In the last year or so, the bulk of the emails I’ve received and the conversations I have are riddled with self doubt, worry, anxiety and fear. Honestly, they really are. I can send you some if you want. Oh - no I can’t. GDPR and that. You just don’t feel you are ‘good enough’ to do the stuff you dream of doing. Whether it’s a first marathon, ultra or adventure trip, you focus on the perceived issues standing in the way, and the potential for failure rather than the glorious opportunity to learn, develop and accomplish amazing things. Lots of people read the paragraph about the event, switch off, close the email and go back to work. You just think there is no way you do it. That frustrates me more than you will ever know.

Classic one liners include
"I could NEVER do that"
"I don’t want to hold others back"
"I’m not fit enough"
"I’m too slow"
"I don’t know where to start"
"I’d love to, but……"


Another classic – "I wonder if you would let me join your team?" LET YOU??? I would LOVE to have you!

These assumptions about the self, stem from a fake world; a made up world that manifests itself in the internet and on the TV and in your head. A world where people that do epic stuff are honed athletes and SAS warriors. A world where everyone is faster, better, stronger than you. Here’s the spoiler.

THAT IS ALL BULLSHIT. YOU ARE ENOUGH. 

I love people. Well most of them. I love MOST people. I love the complexed nature of us as humans, and the fact that one size has never and will never fit all. Bestest of all, I love watching people realise that there IS more in them, achieving things they once considered impossible and channelling that into every other part of their life. I have been there, done that and got loads of T-shirts that I don’t wear very often. My mission is very clear. I want to help ordinary people do extraordinary things. So let’s do this shall we?

Becoming Ultra Awesome

Ultra Awesome is a subscription based community that lives on the internet and in my house in Shepton Mallet. There are two tiers to it, and you can choose how much of your hard earned cash you channel into this. They money is going straight back into the project right now - later down the line I am hoping it can help write 'the book'. It allows me to spend time working with you to get the glorious stuff you want to do done.

The two tiers are Ultra Social and Ultra Awesome. Your choice - and you can unsubscribe at any time if you think it’s rubbish. I won’t be offended. But it won’t be rubbish. Does what it says on the tin doesn't it? 

We’re going to work around the Ultra Awesome facebook group, which is open to all, but it's only the subscribers that get the blogs here, the monthly newsletter with all sorts of gubbins in it and access to my brain hole on a one to one basis. With the two different tiers there are also different benefits. I am also going to be doing some larger scale ultra running projects and adventures and subscribers wil be the first to now about them. These are going to be game changers and world firsts. The first one is in the bag and you can read about it here. That said, there will be loads of opportunities for you lot to get involved in these projects, all you need to do is subscribe!

And that's it! You're building this - and ultimately the legacy will belong to you. How do I know that this will work.? Because I have already been doing it. You can read some lovely testimonials here

Still interested? We let's flippin' well get on with it then!
