I am a very keen runner and enjoy running a variety of distances/races from Park Runs to 24 hour events. I am also a very keen cyclist and will conquer a triathlon this year (I just need to learn how to swim!)

Hi my name’s Martyn I work at Four Marks and sometimes in Eastleigh.
I run for Winchester and District AC, where I have been a member for quite a few years now and run in the V60 age group. Back in my youth I used to race motorcross as well as football refereeing. I took up running because I’d quit refereeing and entered a charity 10km to keep fit. I soon found out I was a much better runner than a referee!
I was ranked 1st V55 for steeplechase on Power of 10 at one point in time. This year, after being injured most of the summer, my comeback was a bronze medal V60 at the southern road relays.
I’m an older runner with lots of experience to help you with any questions or queries so feel free to ask me anything.
Hello, I am Nick, the latest member of the team at Four Marks.
I am from Basingstoke, but went to University at Brunel, and have lived in the city of Bath for a few years. I am a keen 800m runner but have done a couple of half marathons too. I am generally into my sports and fitness and follow Everton FC. I love to cook and am really into trying unusual, exotic foods. I mainly like to cook because I have a huge appetite despite my skinny frame!
Hi I’m Richard. I’m Swedish and I’m the newest member of the Farnham team.
I moved to the UK last year after getting married and I’m an active member of Hatch Warren Runners, where I´m amusingly referred to as the ´Speedy Swede´!
I have been running for over 30 years, having started in my teens. I enjoy all distances from park runs to marathons. I have completed 27 marathons to date, the last one being in Paris this year.
I like to run at least 5 times per week either on the nearby track or in the beautiful countryside surrounding my home. My running club prides itself on being inclusive and we have runners of all abilities from those completing the couch to 5k to experienced ultra runners. I enjoy helping runners to develop their skills, increase their distance and improve on their PBs.
I love to hear about other runner’s stories and triumphs and look forward to seeing you in the store soon.
