Elizabeth Ayres

Ambassador

I’m a relatively new runner having only picked up a pair of trainers in 2017 due to being dared to run a marathon. I’m the kid who forged the PE notes at school and bunked off behind the bike sheds all to avoid any kind of sport. Since then I have run 5 marathons and 1 ultra, numerous races with distances between 1 – 13.1 miles and even had the privilege of pacing inspiring runners at the Oxford Half, Hackney Half, Silverstone Half, Royal Parks Half and London Marathon 2019. I am also the founder of Girls That Run, an online running community for women.
