Casey Morgan is a ultra runner and personal trainer who was born and raised in Dumfries in the south of Scotland. Casey started off as a cyclist and never liked running. He got into ultra running by chance when a friend asked him to be her partner for the Transalpino run in 2009. Before that he had never run trails or mountains but decided it would be a great experience. In the Transalpino event they came 2nd overall! After than he fell in love with the mountains and the trails and has never looked back.
Casey is a serious runner but believes you have to enjoy it too. His training philosophy is to always make it as fun as possible with quality over quantity.
His most epic race so far is Transgrancanaria 2014, with 8000m of ascent over 130km which was pretty brutal. In this race he made it into the top 10 in 1 of the strongest ultra fields anywhere in the world.
This year his major target is the UTMB and to remain injury free!
