Mini CV
I have completed many 100 mile races and 100km races in the mountains and on the road, and I have done The Tor Des Geants 3 times, taking 14 hrs off my time last year.I then ran a marathon 3 weeks after it and got a BP, I love a challenge and now want to concentrate on speed, this race ticks all the boxes for me , I can push through the long ones and I can manage my pace. I recently did a 100km in 9.29hrs and I have fast races planned through the year before Spartathlon if I get in! Im a mother of 2 and a personal trainer , love to see others reach their goals and hopefully inspire a few as well !

Described as the world's most grueling race, the Spartathlon runs over rough tracks and muddy paths (often it rains during the race), crosses vineyards and olive groves, climbs steep hillsides and, most challenging of all, takes the runners on the 1,200 meter ascent and descent of Mount Parthenio in the dead of night.
This is the mountain, covered with rocks and bushes, on which it is said Pheidippides met the god Pan.

Spartathlon is the event that brings this deed to attention today by drawing a legend out of the depths of history. The idea for its creation is belongs to John Foden, a British RAF Wing Commander. As a lover of Greece and student of ancient Greek history, Foden stopped his reading of Herodotus' narration regarding Pheidippides, puzzled and wondering if a modern man could cover the distance from Athens to Sparta, i.e. 250 kms, within 36 hours.
