Growing up on the Isle of Tiree, Owain has always enjoyed the outdoors and fresh air. When he moved to Edinburgh to study at Napier University, student life took over and one too many beers and take-away meals took their toll.
In 2008, after many attempts in the past to get fit and lose the weight he had gained over the years, he signed up for Edinburgh marathon and ran to raise money for the RNLI.
After completing the Edinburgh marathon in just under 5 hours, he joined Pitreavie AAC and started to properly think about training and looking to improve his marathon times.
Running is now a way of life for Owain and without it he wouldn't have met his wife Mandy. He has also met some amazing people and made great friends through pulling on a pair of trainers and running.
He now trains with Edinburgh AC.
