Anna Harding

Anna’s a familiar face amongst the running community, as she heads up The Running Channel on YouTube – an online space for runners of all abilities to learn about running and be entertained by running-related challenges, as well as hear about all the latest gear launches. She’s no stranger to races from 5ks right up to multi-stage ultras. Basically, once an idea has been put into her head to do with running, she does it. Like the time her colleagues suggested she run a marathon in her mum’s 20 metre long back garden. That was a LOT of laps!

Anna’s current challenge is one that will push her to her limits – training for a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon. She’s targeting a sub 3hrs 30 time at Berlin Marathon 2021 and will be documenting it all on The Running Channel. From a 3hr 53min PB at Amsterdam Marathon in 2019 to a total loss of fitness and motivation during the Coronavirus pandemic, Anna will be speaking at Run Show South about her journey from Quarantine To Qualifier.
