How long have you been with RunThrough and what is your role?

I’ve been at RT for over 2 years now! During the week, I have the joys of making sure every runners experience from booking to racing is a smooth and exciting process- I keep the websites up to date with new events, create the beautiful event guides sent out to all runners, and then design all the flags, branding, signs and posters you’ll see on an event day! At the weekend, I have the fun job of leading on the north & midlands event villages!

What is your proudest running achievement?

Back I was fortunate enough to be selected to represent Lancashire in cross country, heptathlon & 400m hurdles. I also have a UK top 10 ranking for the 2km Steeplechase!

What is your next big running goal?

I’m hoping to run my first marathon next year, but first things first is just enjoy getting back into consistent training, and hopefully some fun races along the way.

What is your favourite running song?

Anything that’s upbeat! My playlist is very much a shuffle all songs!

What advise would you give to a newbie runner?

Enjoy the process!! Don’t force it, if you’re too busy, have social plans, or not feeling great, it’s ok to give it a miss for once, there’s plenty more days to come, but when you do get the chance to run, always take it- it will 100% make you feel better!

 

Make sure to say hi to Katie at an event soon!
