About Kirsty

I describe myself as borderline obsessed with running, and have been for more than a decade. Doing it. Reading about it. Writing about it. Coaching it …

While I’ll happy running any distance, I’m happiest when running long distances, particularly off-road and trail ultra marathons. I’ve completed multiple 50 and 100 mile ultras in the UK, as well as races such as Transvulcania in La Palma, and CCC, TDS, and the UTMB in Chamonix, France. I’ve also had success in 24 hour solo races, with a handful of podium places including winning the Adidas Thunder Run in 2013.

I’m the editor at Run247.com, and also write for a number of magazines and other websites.
