Dr Hannah KittsonMedical Advisor
Hannah is an Emergency Medicine Registrar in Cambridgeshire (sadly pretty far away from the mountains). She has a keen interest in event/sports and motorsport medicine. She is currently undertaking the Diploma in Mountain Medicine and tries to escape into the hills as much as possible. In her spare time Hannah enjoys trail running and cycling.
Paul WilmoreDirector / Communications and Safety Manager
Paul understands the pressures of an event organiser, for 5 years he was the event director for the Capricorn Mountain Marathon, organising his first at just 18 years of age. Critical to any event is the clear flow of communication between event officials, particularly when covering such a large geographic area. Radio communication is the only effective and reliable communication medium, that can be utilised in a mission critical scenario. Indeed, the Capricorn was the very first Mountain Marathon event back in the early 1990s to utilise a commercial VHF radio system to provide safety communications
Matt ButlerOperations Assistant
Matt assists Nick on the day-to-day running of the organisation. As well as taking on an administrative role Matt is also a mountain rescue team member and works operationally at our events. Away from the office Matt enjoys climbing.
