Simon Elliott: Guide runner on how running for two can be the ultimate achievement

June 26, 2020

Guide runner Simon Elliott has helped visually-impaired runners complete everything from 5km parkruns to marathons, and even cross-country ultras.

It was something he only took up after his wife volunteered him to help twin girls complete the Daventry parkrun course, but it's become a huge part of his life since then.

As well as talking about what it takes to be a good guide runner and how people can get involved, I spoke to Simon about some of the things he's been doing during the coronavirus lockdown to help visually impaired people stay part of the running community.
