How to go from park run to ultra run

20 fast paced, highly energised, inspiring minutes your running audience will relate to as I share ‘top tips’ on how to go from being a park runner to an ultra runner based on my journey to running a first ultra (the 44 mile Classic Quarter) in 2021 aged 60. 

In an entertaining and humorous style I cover the key elements of such a journey including:

  • Identifying the target ultra and signing up
  • Telling everyone 
  • Being ready to learn 
  • Buying a hydration vest
  • Hot cross buns, water melon and flat coke 
  • Crew support 
  • My key message is ‘If I can do this so can you’ as I encourage your audience to set themselves a big, hairy, audacious goal (BHAG). 

It’s never easy picking the right speaker for your event.

So why choose me?

I’m an experienced event and conference speaker and compère – I know how to create audience engagement, keep the momentum going, run on time and be a memorable part of your event. 

Aa added value for your audience I will include:

  • Two personalised signed copies of my book for members of your audience to win during my session
  • A mini e-book PDF of the key points you can share with them post event
  • An exclusive post-event 10 minute video of the key points accessible only to your audience

It all started in February 2019 

I’m a speaker at a business conference. I’d recently joined a local running club and in my head was planning a third marathon in 2021 to celebrate a landmark birthday.

The headline speaker was internationally renowned Jim Lawless. He talks about ‘Taming Tigers’ – setting goals way outside your comfort zone. Listening to Jim I felt my marathon target wasn’t enough. Over lunch I found the Classic Quarter. 

When I was introduced to the audience before my afternoon session I was asked what I had learnt from Jim. I blurted out that running a 3rd marathon in 2021 wasn’t a big enough challenge. Instead I was going to run the Classic Quarter.

27 months, 2300 training miles and with over £7000 raised for the local children’s hospice music therapy programme I crossed the finish line.

Running 44@60 Podcast 

I knew nothing about planning for or running a ultra marathon! I launched the podcast in August 2019 as a learning and motivational tool. I was and still am hugely grateful to the amazing guests who share so many ideas, tips and pieces of great advice. Thanks everyone! and thanks for listening!

Following the successful completion of the challenge I set out on a journey to complete another challenge: Write a business book that is also a running book. It was launched in December 2021 with proceeds to the SW Children’s Hospice.
