"As the world went into lockdown because of COVID-19 I decided to plan an adventure. I had been training hard and was fit then all of a sudden I had all this free time with no races on the horizon.
I started to look at maps and all of a sudden LEJOG jumped out at me. I started planning and kept everything crossed that the lockdown restrictions would be lifted in time for me to kick start my adventure. Luckily they did and on 16 July I set off in attempt to break the World Record running from Land’s End in Cornwall to John O’Groats in Scotland!
12 days 30 minutes and 14 seconds later I arrived in John O’Groats setting a new Ladies World Record in the process! Every single step of this journey hurt, it was a physical battle to get to the end but I embraced the pain and pushed through to the very end!"
Hi! I’m Carla a record breaking ultra runner, adventurer and running coach who seeks out events that are slightly harder than the average. I love pushing my body to the limits by running a long way, up mountains, around islands and recently running the length of Great Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats and setting a new ladies World Record along the way.
I am very proud to have represented Great Britain at the 100km World Championships and be a Hoka One One Athlete.
I love seeing what my mind and body are capable of and I hope in searching for my potential I can help unlock yours!
