Lara is a member of our newly established Scotland-based testing team. Having completed her degree in Edinburgh, Lara now lives permanently in the city, which gives her great access to seven famous hills - including Arthur's seat plus the nearby Pentlands. When she's not hurtling up local peaks, Lara can be found further afield in the central highlands, with the fantastic trail running options offered in the Cairngorms being her current favourite adventure destination.

Lara's passion for running and gear is focused on sustainability - she isn't afraid to tell you exactly what she thinks a brand is missing, or could do better when it comes to protecting the planet.
