Katie Roby is a recently converted ultra-marathon runner, completing her first event 18 months ago and is now officially hooked. Inspired by a move to South Wales and some gentle nudging from her fell running club she has found something that seems very natural to her, already winning a number of the Welsh ultra races, and she is keen to test her self further, in longer multi day adventures later this year.
Whilst Katie will openly admit how fiercely competitive she is when it comes to running and adventure racing, she also relishes any opportunity to spend time in the great outdoors and is often seen up in the Brecon Beacons on her bike or walking. When not out “playing” in the hills Katie works as a physiotherapist in South Wales.
Katie has been involved in a number of overseas mountaineering expeditions to the Himalayas, the Andes and more recently to Kyrgystan. Her skills are being put to the test at the moment as she completes her training with the Brecon Mountain Rescue team
