Amber Hemingway
Shop Manager

Amber joined the Run4It team in June 2023 after moving to Aberdeen. She started running for her local athletics club as a kid and for the Humberside and South Yorkshire Army Cadet Force as a teen, racing cross country. After an injury, Amber had to put her running shoes aside for a while and sought solace in other outdoor pursuits. However, Amber has recently rediscovered her love for running and is excited to use trail running to explore Scotland. Outside of work, Amber can also be found hiking up mountains and climbing big rocks and is looking forward to climbing some Munros.

Rachel has been competing in track and cross country races for over 10 years since she joined her local athletics club. She has more recently focused on road racing where she has found a love for racing longer distances from 5k up to half marathon and hopes to step up to the marathon in the future!

Nick Milovsorov
Team Member

Nick is old. Very old. So old in fact that no one can quite remember how and when he started running. All they know is he always has! There are rumours and vague recollections that it may have been sometime between his 8th and 10th birthdays. Suffice to say he is still soldiering on. Over the years he has performed on the road and cross country to a respectable club standard and unlike a good wine has not got better with age. Fortune favours the persistent however and in recent years he has amassed 12 Scottish Championship medals, of varying hues, in the Super Vet Category. These have included the East XC Champs, Master National XC Champs, 10k Road Champs plus road and XC relays. Every year gets a little harder with a new influx of oldies but with 1 year still in this age band the opportunity is there to add one or two more.

Ryan Snook
Team Member

Ryan's running journey started at 15 when he signed up for the local athletics club to complete his sports section of his silver Duke of Edinburgh Award, finding a love for middle distance runs like a 5k. Ryan is still trying to better his PB of 23 minutes and will probably try for a long time. You can normally find Ryan either covered in chalk at the local bouldering gym or enjoying the view from the top of a Tor his hiked up solving a Rubik's cube.
