22–23 Mar 2025 338 days to go! #GetOutside

Gareth Jones

I founded the social media platforms called Mental health wanderer during Lockdown in 2020, this is when I decided to start running and from 10k it progressed to hundreds of miles within months.
I am an ex drug addict who also suffered an eating disorder, I believe that sharing my story will help others.

I’m currently in the British Army and I’m married with 3 kids.

I’m from a small village called Cwmaman in South Wales where I grew up with family who have supported me throughout my adventures good and bad.

Below you will find a list of my current achievements:
300 Mile ultra – Cambrian Way 5 days
200 mile ultra – Offas dyke 4 days
100 miles – 24 hours
Brecon beacons horseshoe FKT
Taff trail FKT
Dare valley Ridge FKT
Trail Marathon – 3:39
Marathon – 2:56
Half Marathon – 1:18
10k – 35:39

Next year I plan on running the 3 UK Peaks and the distance inbetween, to spread awareness for MH. All my runs are for charity or a special cause, recently I carried a boys ashes for 300 miles.
