Don't Look Back

Dion Leonard - Author  / Motivator / Ultra Runner

Dion Leonard, Ultra Runner, Ultra Running

‘Don’t Look Back’ were the words Dion Leonard told himself at the vulnerable age of 13 when he left behind an unhappy, unstable and destructive family home for the unpredictable life on the streets with nothing and no-one to guide him. Dion’s fight for survival led him to become overweight, alcohol dependent and smoking more than a pack of cigarettes a day, all trying to hide the inner demons from his childhood. In his late 30’s Dion looked at himself in the mirror and realised he needed to make a change and he turned to running, long distance running known as ‘ultra running’. 

Sticking to the ‘Don’t Look Back’ mantra, Dion became iron willed with an innate ability to survive even the most unlikely and terrifying of situations and become one of the worlds top ultra runners going on to compete and complete some of the toughest and most extreme endurance ultra running races in the world across the planets most inhospitable locations. Dion has tested, pushed, broke and set new limits across formidable landscapes from inhospitable deserts, high altitude mountains to wild jungles in which Dion along the way has rebuilt his mental and physical limits in search of the ultra high, to find himself and to become the best he can be.
