Sabrina Pace-Humphreys

Ambassador

Sabrina Pace-Humphreys is a 42 year old mother of 4 and grandmother of 2.

Sabrina started running after the birth of her fourth child in 2009. She initially took up the sport as a way to lose 5 stones of weight gained through her pregnancy, and manage her mental health while living with post-natal depression. By self coaching over time she lost the weight but also found a passion for running and used it as a way to ‘reclaim herself’ while living with anxiety and depression. In her early running journey, Sabrina completed a variety of distances from 5K to marathon distance and has travelled the world via the love of her sport – completing New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Edinburgh and London Marathon to name but a few.

In 2016 Sabrina increased her distance to ultra marathon and found a love of trail running while preparing to run the toughest footrace on earth – the Marathon Des Sables – a 250K multi-day ultramarathon in the Sahara desert. This was an adventure she wanted to ‘compete’ in as a goal event to celebrate her 40th birthday. In 2018, Sabrina completed this race as 13th UK woman to cross the finish line.

This sparked something inside her to want to help others use running, and trail running in particular, to manage their mental health.

In July 2020 following the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, a rise sparked by the murder of runner Ahmaud Arbery amongst others, Sabrina co-found the fast growing community and campaigning group – Black Trail Runners. A trail running community for black people who want to experience trail running. Whether new to the discipline, or an experienced trail runner, this communities common goal is to provide a safe space for Black men and women who are looking to connect, get support from and be inspired via a community of Black men and women, and white allies, who are passionate about trail running and inclusivity for ALL.
