The Worthian that keeps on running

Alice Robinson StA'15 on one of her 41 marathons
Alice Robinson StA'15 on one of her 41 marathons
For most of us the idea of taking part in a marathon would involve many months of training, days of sore muscles post-event, and probably a vow to never do it again! Not Alice Robinson StA'15, who took part in her first marathon in June 2019 having entered on the day itself, with no prior training, and ended up finishing as the first senior female! After that she definitely had the running bug, deciding to do 10 marathons in 10 days back in March this year, followed by 2 back-to-back ultra-marathons in July.

In August Alice thought she'd double her marathon count again, this time completing 20 ultramarathons in 20 days, followed by a marathon and then two half marathons over the following three days. She won the first two races and, by the end of it, had gone from 20 lifetime marathons/ultras to a staggering 41! Some achievement for a Worth girl who "wasn't particularly sporty" at School.

Alice obviously adores running and has plenty more challenges in the pipeline starting with the Brathay 10in10 in Windermere (10 marathons in 10 days) for the youth charity, Brathay Trust. We salute her incredible stamina and perseverance - keep on running Alice!
