Background

Rachel has been running since the age of 11 when she realised a natural aptitude for cross country. Having nurtured her athletic talent on track and field with a solid team at Birmingham University, Rachel was fortunate to spend time in the US. While at Boston University she dropped her 1500m time from 4.28 to 4.18 and represented England in the 1500m at the U23 European Championships in Amsterdam.

Upon returning to the UK, Rachel graduated from Birmingham University with degrees in Sports Science and Physiotherapy. She has worked closely with athlete / coach Chris Frapwell and maintained a successful cross country career and further performances representing England.

Following the birth of her daughter three years ago, Rachel decided to take her first steps on the road running scene, with successes at various distances from one mile to half marathon. We are delighted to welcome

Rachel joined the Team in 2015 and we have been impressed by her drive and determination. This dedication earned Rachel a qualifying time to represent Great Britain at the 2016 World Half Marathon Championships in Cardiff.

In her spare time Rachel enjoys baking and growing vegetables in her home allotment. She still spends time in the US and Canada visiting the friends she made while at Uni and tries to combine these trips with a race.
