Sarah has had a keen interest in running since the age of 16. She has trained with several clubs over the years including Stilton Striders in Melton Mowbray, Beaumont Leys in Leicester and Springfield Striders in Chelmesford.
Her most memorable race was the Leicester Half Marathon which she won and received a prize to compete in the Strasbourg half. In 1989, Sarah took part in the London Marathon which she finished in an impressive 3 hours 29 minutes.
Sarah decided to start coaching so she could give something back to a sport she loves and one that has been a big part of her life. She recently passed her Athletics Coach qualification and now coaches the younger age groups at Harling Athletics Club. She believes they should be outdoors taking part in a fantastic sport, having fun, getting fresh air and socialising with others.
Sarah still likes to race and compete and loves nothing better than running round the woods on a lovely, crisp, cold morning!
