Holly Rush is an ex international road marathon runner turned ultra trail runner. She didn’t start running competitively until her late 20’s and started out as a fun runner. So in 2010 when she was selected to represented Great Britain at the European Athletics Championships in Barcelona (18th and team Bronze) she couldn’t believe how far she had come. She went on to come 8th at the Commonwealth Games in 2010 and has represented GB at the World Mountain Championships twice winning team silver and bronze.
Holly has over 10 years of personal training under her belt, is a qualified sports therapist, level 2 run coach and has a masters degree in sports coaching. She is also the ASICS UK FrontRunner community manager.
She is more likely to be found in the mountains these days. She ran her first 100 miler in 2017 and has gone on to do many mountain ultras including the UTMB, ran the Annapurna Circuit solo and climbed Mont Blanc.
