The Mercer Surrey Half Marathon – “This race has a special place in my heart as it was the first half marathon I ran and was the beginning of realising I could run longer distances.”
Goals for the year:
Gemma is participating in The Fox Ultra (60km) as part of her training for Threshold Race to the King – a 53-mile race which she describes as “a terrifying distance”. It will be the longest distance she will have ever completed by 20 miles. Gemma is also registered for the LDWA Punchbowl Marathon, Trionium Leith Hill Half Marathon and Maverick Original Surrey.
Favourite training session:
With the St Thomas Trotters group – we run every Tuesday after the school drop off. After escaping the children we take off across the Surrey Hills with 3 crazy dogs in tow.
Essential race kit:
I love a skort! And my CEP calf guards.
