25–26 Jan 2025 197 days to go! #RunShow

Melanie Campbell

Hi, I’m Melanie. I’ve proudly been a National Running Show Ambassador for a few years now.

I often call it ‘The Greatest Show’ or the ‘Glastonbury’ of running. Ot is a fantastic weekend that brings people together; individuals, groups, brands and sports stars with one shared passion, running. There is no other place or community like it.

I personally have always enjoyed running. I think I am just naturally restless (!).

My running endeavours include parkrun and I have a lifelong ‘ love affair’ with the London Marathon, which I have completed four times and am going for my fifth in 2025.

I also love trail running and ultras. I did Race to The Castle in 2021, and this summer will endeavour to take on Race to The Stones.

I have raised thousands of pounds for local charities through my sporting escapades and over the next year, I am undertaking project #RUN102point7 to fundraise for University Hospitals Dorset Charity for a new CT scanner.

I believe the spirit and power of running transcends sport. The values of community, sustainability and respect for everyone, regardless of speed, size, race, gender etc. are positive impacts of running that I continually witness and advocate.
