When not taking on crazy challenges, Jodie gets her kicks from running long distances on the trails. She’s placed on the podium at numerous events including the Exmoor 50k and Maverick Ultra Peak District. --- Jodie Gauld on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jodiegauld/ Trail Runs - https://trailruns.co.uk
