About Me

Lucy Bird is a teacher and mum to three teenagers. She started running to build strength and fitness (and to escape the horrors of bath time when the children were little!). She became increasingly passionate about running and takes part in events of all types, but has found that her forte and joy lies in endurance over speed so race distances have been getting longer and more trail oriented. She is excited to be tackling her first ultramarathon this autumn having completed several standalone marathons and many triathlons up to Ironman distance over the past few years.
