Trail & Mountain Running Maryport, UK 31 - 03 - 1985


Ricky Lightfoot is one of the top trail/mountain runners in the world and is former World Trail Running Champion after his victory in 2013. Ricky is born and raised in the Lake District where he lives up to his surname and runs about 120 miles a week in the beautiful scenery around Maryport.

Ricky’s talent, along with great personality, has resulted in him becoming a very popular athlete on the trail and mountain running scene. He has filmed with Salomon Running TV several times along with working with key retailers such as Wiggle to promote Salomon products and offer a real ROI on his sponsorship.

Whilst he holds the record on several iconic races across the world including Mauritius, South Africa and the Scafell Pike; his goal for 2015 is to retain the Trail Running World Championships in Annecy, attacking the infamous Bob Graham round in the Lake District and getting more involved in filming projects around the world.
