Laddie Hannam and Ann Taylor

Laddie Hannam and Ann Taylor met on the trails during a KneeKnacker training run back in 2003. After 10 KneeKnacker Trail Races that both completed in the same year some 13 years later in 2016, team “Over the Hill” trail running was formed for the TransAlps after watching a bunch of local runners successfully complete the year prior. Fear of Missing out (FOMO!) captured them and now they both have a beautiful adventure to share, figuring the time was “now” as they weren’t getting any younger and are still able to run after all these years, while managing a bunch of injuries.
