About Me

Morten Lidegaard lives in Ottawa and is a self-proclaimed Brittified Dane who is slowly turning Canadian. He has been running on and off since his early twenties – at times, other activities like inline skating, kayaking or mountain biking would take over, but he has always found his way back to running for some reason.

He is a huge fan of trails, mud, hills and long distances and fuelled primarily by greens, beans and grains. He has conquered half-marathons, marathons, and ultra-marathons over the past seven years.

He never listens to music while running, but you will most likely see the gadget-loving runner with a couple of GPS watches along with a camera on his runs; capturing the spectacular scenery around Ottawa in all kinds of weather and all year round: No such thing as bad weather – only poor clothing… Just get out there!
