Having grown up in the mountains of South Wales, UK, Mark has always had a passion for the outdoors. His family ran an outdoor education center where mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, caving, and other outdoor pursuits were a part of everyday life. After teaching climbing at a camp in Pennsylvania for two summers, Mark moved to the States to be with his summer love, Margo and the rest is history.
Mark is the primary race director for the Cameco Cowboy Tough, a 3.5-day expedition race through Wyoming, the Run & Ride half marathon race series held at multiple Cedar Fair amusement parks, and the Shenandoah Epic Adventure Weekend, one of the largest adventure racing events in the country.
Mark lives in Front Royal, Virginia with his wife, Margo, and two children.
