Victoria started running ultras in March 2011. Her first long distance ultra-run was the Wye Valley 50-mile race where she was accompanied by her best friend who encouraged her to have a try at an ultra-distance race for her 30th birthday! Victoria loved her first event so much she then did a further seven events in 2011 and often even now runs with a Malamute named Blizzard.
Vicci’s greatest achievements are winning the 9BAR sponsored 50K ultra race in Nottingham, and without a doubt winning the Scafell Pike Trail Marathon.
Vicci has not taken part in as many races in 2014 due to the very important reason… she became a Mum. Vicci is very proud that she was able to maintain her training the whole way through her pregnancy… she was even running marathons at five and a half months pregnant. Vicci has also been very pleased she has been able to get back into running including competitive racing less than 12 weeks after baby Juliet (future ultra-runner) was born.
Vicci is hoping for a fantastic year of racing; she is already signed up for the World Trail Championships in Annecy, a 86KM Mountain race which will take place in May as well as the Scarfell Pike Trail Marathon and the Ennerdale 50K ultra in the stunning surrounding on the Lake District.
