Please note that this event now takes place on Tuesday 28 April instead of the previously advertised Wednesday 22 April due to unavoidable race commitments.
Chrissie Wellington only started as a professional triathlete at the age of 30 but quickly became the world’s No 1 female Ironman triathlete, a four times World Champion and World Record holder. In 2009 she was voted ‘Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year’ and in 2010 was awarded the MBE. Her victory in Kona, Hawaii in 2007, finishing five minutes ahead of her nearest rival, was described as the ‘biggest upset in Ironman history’ and ‘a near impossible task for any athlete racing as a rookie at their first Ironman World Championships’.
Now the Global Lead for Health and Wellbeing for Parkrun, Chrissie will share her inspirational story and enthusiasm for driving positive change across the world through the power of sport and participation.
