25–26 Jan 2025 277 days to go! #RunShow

Tamie Slade

I started running in July 2016 having been inspired by meeting the running great, Sally Gunnell, and wanting to tackle a half marathon before turning 40. I completed Cardiff half marathon in October 2016 taking me 2hrs 31 mins and I haven’t looked back.

Since then I’ve become a member of Weston Athletics Club, and RunMummyRun. I am now completing a half marathon a month this year to raise money for charity, as I chase after that 2 hour time.

April 2017 sees me adventuring into trail running, learning how to fuel correctly (nutrition) and introducing double runs into my training.

I am no stranger to running having grown up with an athletics coach as a dad, but its only now in my older years I value the freedom, the fight, and the passion running gives me.
