About Me

James Bosher

 Runner for Grange Farm & Dunmow Runners & Bishop’s Stortford Running Clubs and Team Muddy Kit OCR

I have been a club runner since 2015 and haven’t looked back since. I enjoy running as a hobby and don’t take myself too seriously. I do however have a competitive side to me and strive to perform to the best of my ability at every given opportunity.  Learning all the time while also hopefully improving on personal bests and general fitness and during my relatively short time as a club runner I have been amazed at the social aspect of the sport and have made no rivals but many friends. I seem to stand out not only because of my height and love for long compression socks but the fact I consider all fellow runners regardless of ability as friends. I also compete in some obstacle races for Team Muddy Kit and have qualified for the 2018 world championships.
