Nationality: UK

Dan Lawson is a British ultra elite runner and charity worker.

“Running brings me peace. I feel so grateful to commune with nature each day and spend time in stillness. Being an Ultra Runner I am part of an adventurous and warm community with whom I can enjoy the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring places in the world.

My mission is to continue to do what I love. I believe we are born to run and are limitless beings, capable of anything we put our minds to.

It’s magical and I feel so lucky that my sport is my life, my joy, my profession and that I get to live it every day.”

Dan runs for a living and he’s had some epic adventures around the world.
He loves India where he runs Goa Dan for social change in a local community.

Dan committed to buy Nothing new for a year and inspires others to do the same through a Facebook group and Rerun Clothing.

Together with his ultrarunner mate Robbie Britton, Dan ran the 650km Jordan Trail from Um Qais near the Israeli border in the north to Aqaba on the Red Sea coast in the south in March 2019.
