Teacher's latest marathon effort

Teacher's latest marathon effort

Posted: 16th April 2018

A teacher who once ran four marathons in one year is taking on her dream event – the London Marathon.

Ms Round is preparing to take on the famous running challenge next week to raise funds for The Children’s Society.

While most would be a little fearful of the 26-mile run, the teacher from Forest Hall School, in Stansted, knows she can go the distance.

The subject lead for maths said: “Back in 2016, I went from running 10k events to completing three marathons!

“I did the Manchester Marathon, then two weeks later in April did the reverse London Marathon – where people who have not secured a place run the course in reverse the night before the main event – and then the 50k Race to the Stones ultra-marathon in the North Wessex Downs. Then, that September, I completed the Berlin Marathon.

“Everything became about training and so, for a few months, I fell out of love with running. Then I watched the London Marathon last year and got the bug again!”

Ms Round secured her charity place for The Children’s Society at Christmas and began training in the new year.

Students at Forest Hall are helping their teacher with her fundraising mission, paying to attend the last day of term in non-uniform, holding a cake sale and even joining in with some training.

Ms Round said: “Training is different this time as I am used to training with other people as part of the WMN RUN group, which promotes female endurance athletes. This time, I am training on my own which makes it a far more mental challenge as I am left just with my own thoughts. Physically, I know I can do the marathon. Unless I get injured, I will cross that finish line.

“I am going for the experience and to just enjoy it rather than to achieve a good time. I have always wanted to do the London Marathon. I’ve watched it on telly since I was a little girl and have been to watch it since moving to London seven years ago.

“I’m excited and really happy to be supporting the Children’s Society. Looking after children obviously means a lot to me and the charity does amazing work.”
