Chris Beale

Ambassador

I was getting older and realised that I needed look after myself better, to get healthier and fitter, so in the Summer of 2016 I went to my first parkrun. I didn’t know anyone there, I wasn’t a fast runner but none of that mattered because from that day I fell in love with running.

Since then, I’ve run loads of 5K, 10K and half marathons races and a few marathons. During that time, I’ve learnt lots about running and have really enjoyed being part of the fantastic running community. I’m now hoping to run my first 50 mile Ultra during 2021.

But it’s not all been about running for me. I also love to give back. I’m a regular volunteer and I’ve also helped many runners achieve their goals through being a race pacer.

I also love to inspire others during their running journey which is what I try to do through the “Here We Are Running” YouTube channel, releasing new running videos every week.
