The Dramathon was dreamed up by Jon Dunderdale and Ian King over a dram or two. We are running and single malt enthusiasts (one of us is better at running, the other is better at whisky).
We aim to create an event which is well-put together and professionally organised, but that retains a sense of humour, a chilled-out atmosphere, is inclusive, and great value for money. This is all supposed to be fun - right?
To deliver The Dramathon we have partnered with Durty Events, run by Paul McGreal.
Paul was the Race Director for the ITU World Duathlon Championships held in Edinburgh in 2010, and the ITU World Paratriathlon Series race held at Strathclyde Park in 2016. He was Event Director of the IOF World Orienteering Championships 2015 (an event with an economic impact of £9.5M and involving 1500+ volunteers).
He was a member of the Triathlon Scotland Board of Directors with responsibility for the development of off-road racing in the country from 2008-2015. Whilst we're banging on about this kind of thing, Paul was also the GBR Age Group Team Manager for the European and World Cross Triathlon Championship teams for 3 years.
