FASTEST JOGLE RUN EVER BY A WOMAN

Team GB ultra runner Sharon Gayter sets new record for the time from John O’Groats to Land’s End (JOGLE)

“Why should I let my age stop me trying to break records?” says Sharon Gayter. The 55-year-old ultrarunner became the fastest woman to travel by foot along the 822-mile JOGLE trail, completing the challenge in 12 days, 11 hours and six minutes. “Apart from tender feet, I feel amazing,” she tells us, a few days afterwards. “But when your feet strike the ground 1.7 million times you expect that.

About Women’s Running

In the September issue of Women’s Running, we want you to banish the guilt and claim your running for you! We look at some incredible locations where you can regroup, get some me-time, and run your socks off. Go on - you deserve it. If you’re looking to push your training to the next level, we’ve got the ultimate introduction to triathlon, and how a bit of swimming and cycling can benefit your running in so many ways. And now that it’s back to school time, we’ve also included a no-time 10K training plan, for those of us with more than one schedule to juggle. Plus, we speak to the incredible and inspirational Anna McNuff, who is currently mid-way through a 2,620-mile tour of Britain - on foot, and barefoot. As a Girlguiding ambassador, she’s on a mission to inspire girls everywhere to be brave and seek adventure.
