ABOUT ME

I'm Becca and I'm a Lancashire lass living in London.I returned to running in May 2016 to deal with a stressful time in my life, and I've never looked back! I'm grateful for the challenges, friendships and adventures running brings and I love to get outside and get moving. I love doing absolutely anything and everything from parkrun to triathlon, and i enjoy combining my passion for the environment with my running. Life is an adventure to be enjoyed to the fullest.

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

I completed the London Classics all within 5 months. This included the London Marathon in April 2018, Ride London 100 mile cycle in July 2018 and Swim Serpentine 2 mile swim in September 2018. Prior to 2018 I had never run a marathon, I had never ridden a road bike and I had a fear open water. One major personal achievement in my life is battling with obesity. I've lost a third of my bodyweight and found a new lease of life along the way. I'm fitter now in my 20s than I was in my teens.

MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS

I've been bitten by the triathlon bug and I'm currently working towards my first Ironman 70.3 at Stafford in June 2020. Beyond that I want to enjoy running and travelling, I love being outdoors and exploring new places.
