Chrissie Wellington to race her first ultra marathon
4x Kona champ Chrissie Wellington has announced she will be running Heineken Race to the Tower, a double marathon along the Cotswolds Way, on 10th June.
“I’m really excited about this new adventure, but I have to admit to being slightly daunted too. The HeinekenRace to the Tower is a huge, huge challenge for me,” she says.
“An ultra is something I said I would never do and I’m quite worried that I may not even finish. I did run the London Marathon in April, which was a fantastic experience and I really enjoyed having a sporting goal again – even if I’m not as fast as I used to be. I’m still not sure what came over me, but I decided to Google ultra races soon after crossing the finish line. I blame post marathon delirium.
