Morgan Williams

was until recently the Secretary of the Bob Graham 24 Hour Club, which was formed in 1971, a post he held for 12 years. He is a past General Secretary of the Fell Runners Association, the body which manages the sport of fell running in England. He is member number 371 of the BG Club having completed the round in 1985 at the ripe old age of 21. After many years of fell and mountain racing, he returned to his mountain-ultrarunning roots in the 2000s completing amongst other races two CCCs (2010 and 2011), the Ultra Trail Serra de Tramuntana in Mallorca (2012), and UTMB (2012). In July of 2016, he sustained major injuries in a trail running fall but, with lots of help, especially from his wife Alison, he’s fighting back.
