We’re Jen & Sim – we’re runners, writers, adventurers and parents. We love being outdoors and having amazing adventures, whether we’re camping with our kids or running in the mountains.

We’re delighted to be Ordnance Survey #GetOutside Champions for 2017 and part of Team Trail Running magazine taking on the challenge to #Run1000Miles in 2017.


When we’re not out having adventures we’re usually busy writing about them. Our aim is to inspire, inform and make exploring wild and beautiful places achievable and enjoyable for all. Our guide to the best off-road running in Britain, Wild Running, was published in 2014 and has been chosen as one of the top books for runners in the Running Awards 2017. Our new book, Amazing Family Adventures with the National Trust, is out in April 2017 and we have a book of Devon walks coming out later this year. We’re routes editors and gear testers for Trail Running Magazine, write a monthly column for Running magazine and are regular contributors to Trail and Country Walking magazines.
