Long Distance Runner

I love running long distances but primarily specialising in fell running, having set women’s records for the hardest fell running challenges in the UK, the Ramsay Round, the Paddy Buckley Round, Lake District 24 and the Bob Graham Round. In 2016 I got the overall record for the double Bob Graham Round. When I’m not running then I’m putting in the hard graft looking after the cows on my farm.

The Number Crunch:

  • Bob Graham Double - 132-miles, 84 peaks, 54,000ft of ascent, 45 hours 30 minutes.
  • Bob Graham Round, 18:06.
  • Paddy Buckley, 19:02.
  • Ramsay Round, 19:39.
