Capt. Tom Evans
Capt Tom Evans is a British Army Officer and Ultra Runner. A keen sportsman, Tom has continually nurtured his interest within fitness over many years. After completing a year’s training at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst in 2012, Tom was commissioned into the Welch Guards. Tom credits the strength in his mental attitude to his strict military background.
By 2016, Tom began to act upon his talent for long-distance running by representing his county and the British Army. In early 2017, he participated in the Marathon des Sables, a 250km race across the Sahara Desert. Tom finished 3rd, the highest place made by any European athlete, ever.
As Tom is very new to the ultra-running scene, his performance at the Marathon des Sables came as surprise to the running world, and even to Tom himself! Later this year, Tom plans to be racing in the Ultra Trail Wold Tour, as well as competing in the UK 100km championships.
Tom has been a proud advocate of OG Supplements since our early days and will continue to be a proud sponsor of the brand:
"OG Supplements is a company that I can completely trust. OG Supplements really helped me to work out my calorie requirements for the Marathon des Sables. I use their supplements during my training and recovery. During MdS I used OG High Cal to get the necessary calories into my body. It’s a great supplement that really works! I will be using OG Supplements and OG's expertise in my races to come.”
